It’s officially the season for hauling Xmas trees by bike

A mom and kid posing in front of a family cargo bike with a christmas tree in a trailer.My wonderful spouse Kelli hauled both a tree and a kid home.

I definitely want to see your Seattle tree-by-bike photos. Tag them #SEAbikes if you post photos on social media. Or email them to me and I’ll add them to this post. [email protected]

UPDATE: Here’s reader Duncan with two kids and a tree. Love it.

    I have a GSD but not a fancy cargo trailer (do have a Burley trailer though). Do you think it’s feasible to tie a tree directly to the bike?

      I suppose that depends on how big the tree is, but there’s pretty much always a way to make it work with enough straps :-)

      Kelli also had the kid on the back, so that’s why they took the trailer.

        Thanks, I’ll give it a shot. One nice thing about the QA tree lot is it’s run by boy scouts, and tying knots is basically their #1 skill, right?

        Maybe you’ll get one of them a badge.
