Successful Bike & Pedestrian Move in Durham!

March 19, 2012 at 8:08 am Leave a comment

On Sunday, March 4th, friends and neighbors of Katherine O’Brien were asked to bring their bikes, trailers, bungee cords, wagons, hand trucks, wheelbarrows, backpacks, and any other non-motorized means of transportation for a ¼ mile bike and pedestrian moving parade! There were 22 people participating—8 pedestrian and 13 bike movers.  In only two trips they managed to move nearly all of Katherine’s smaller household goods, some small furniture, boxes, clothes, and kitchen items.  Not to mention a stylishly undressed mannequin torso, a bright green parasol, a pink guitar that Katherine’s friend Brian played while moving it on foot down the street, and lots of faux stuffed beavers!

Veteran bike mover Debbie Campbell West of East Coast Greenway coordinated the bike and pedestrian move.  Katherine thought it would be a great way to show people how much they can do on bike and on foot—and have fun to boot!

The host provided pizza and beer following the move, and naturally laughter…

To anyone else who is thinking about moving by bike—do it!!  Debbie will be glad to help anyone prepare and organize a bike move to ensure that it goes smoothly, and if she’s close enough to bike to your house, she just might bring her trailer and help you out!
