MOVE IT! by bike

Moving The World To A Greener Future

MOVE IT! by bike has been serving New Orleans by moving stuff since August of 2013 using a bicycle and a trailer that can haul 600lbs.  

Doubling Up

Yesterday (2-8) MOVE IT! by bike worked two moving jobs.  One an unloading job in Hanrahan.  The other transporting an Elliptical exersize machine in Algiers.  Our client picked up our crew of Chris and Hunter to transport them to the job in Hanrahan and back avoiding a bike ride that would take over an hour.  It did not take them long to do the job and soon Chris and Hunter were back in New Orleans enjoying the nice weather.

Tim, John and Paul had an 8 mile bike ride pulling our trailer to the pick up location in Algiers.  Algiers is on the other side of the Mississippi from where we are.  Problem is no bridges are safe for bicycles to cross them and I think they are not allowed to.  The ferry that transports cars across is no longer in service but a ship does provide service for pedistrians and cyclists.  Problem is we also have a trailer.  So in order to get to the other side we unhitched the trailer and carried it aboard the ferry.  On the other side we carried the trailer off, hitched it back on the bike and off we went to the pick up location about 7 miles distant.  

But the hard part was not the getting there.  As always, the hard part was getting the elliptical machine from its second story location onto the trailer and then from the trailer to its new home through a narrow L shaped doorway.  But we did it.

All of these adventures and we only took one picture.
