Cargobikes & Coffee...🍪☕️🚲📦

 

Well, actually it should be “Cargobikes & Cookies”, but who’s complaining. 🤷🏾😃

This Saturday, July 6th, 2024 from 9am-11am Sirius Cycles is inviting anyone who has a cargobike to join us at the parking lot adjacent to the Kakawa Chocolate House and Montezuma Park on Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe, NM for some *chocolate treats and talk cargobikes, bikes in general, or anything else you would to chat about.

This gathering is not only for folks who have a cargobike, but any bike will do, especially if you use your bike instead of your car for those daily errands, school drop-offs, grocery runs or anything else that comes to mind. We are just encouraging folks to just GO BY BIKE!

 

*Chocolate goodies will be provided by Sirius Cycles until supplies last. Any coffee or drinks will have to be purchased at Kakawa Chocolate House at your own expense.
