Work Bikes, Freight Bicycles, Cargo Trikes, Utility Bicycles, Industrial Bikes -- or whatever you want to call them -- have been been with us for almost as long as the original safety bicycle itself. Though not conceived for recreation or racing, they have often been conscripted into those rolls too. But primarily their role has been utilitarian. Moving materials, goods, animals and people from place to place. Human propelled mules. Pedal powered trucks.

This visual teaser showcases the capabilities of these uber-efficient beasts of burden.
