What’s your favorite Seattle bike-powered business?

Eric at Tubulocity ran into Steve Richmond of Garden Cycles the other day while riding under the West Seattle bridge. Turns out, Garden Cycles is a gardening service concentrating on planting native species and removing invasive ones. Oh, also, they do a whole lot of the work using bikes (the video above was posted by the good folks at Undriving in April).

So, this got me thinking: How many awesome at-least-somewhat bike-powered businesses are there in this city? I know of a few (like Piecycle!), but there must be many more. So leave a comment promoting a bike-powered local business (either yours or one you like).

  1. Awesome way to use a bike. For those who are a little less adventurous, an electric motor could be installed on the bike to provide a little assistance with zero emissions.

      I agree! I think electric assist can greatly increase the number of tasks businesses can reasonably accomplish by bike.

  2. Here’s who was reppin Ballard in early ’09:

    I’m a fan of the Cape Cleare salmon folks and their epic Big Dummy / Trailer setups.

    And there’s the sailboat and e-trike transport CSA folks:

    But Kozmo.com in SF circa late 90s still has my heart.

    This company is so successful I wasn’t even been able to get an appointment with them: http://www.homemaidseattle.com

      1. Mike! Thanks for the shout out. If you are still interested, we’d love to meet with you. We now have four cycling employees and two bike trailers to haul our gear.

        Best,
