Our distribution of the Blogdowntown Weekly continues! Look for the latest issue at coffee shops, lobbies, etc. in and around the Downtown Los Angeles area this Thursday, August 12, 2010.

The paper is being distributed by the Flying Pigeon LA bike shop (we have awesome friends willing to gamble their productive work hours on crazy idea), on cargo bikes like the Nihola Family – a Danish tricycle capable of 200 lbs. of cargo in the front carriage. The Nihola’s tight turning radius, stability at low speeds while under load, sturdy all-weather construction, and relative light weight design make these ideal for urban transportation and errand running.

If you’re in downtown the next two days, keep an eye out for our crew! We’re going to have an additional bakfiets cargo bike thrown into the mix this week to see if we can’t get more papers where they need to go, faster.
