Who wouldn't love a pair of Moose Mitts?

Who wouldn’t love a pair of Moose Mitts?

Need some ideas for fun, healthy holiday gifts that don’t scream “You’re fat!”? That was the topic of this week’s News-Sentinel column, which in some cases secretly doubles as my own personal Christmas list. I mean, who wouldn’t love a pair of Moose Mitts (they attach to your bike’s handlebars for extra cold-weather protection), Luna Sandals (made by Barefoot Ted of “Born to Run” fame)  or a shipment of local organic produce from Green Bean Delivery? (I’ve actually got an order in the works on that last one, in conjunction with an upcoming blog review and promo code for you guys, so stay tuned.)

Naturally, I’d no sooner turned in that column than I came across another item I wish I’d included: Cargo bikes, aka the “next generation of minivan,’ which manage to look both funkily futuristic and kind of like a third-world taxi at the same time. Apparently people are using them to haul everything from fish to children to mattresses. How awesome is that?

This Bakfiet style cargo bike is currently up for auction on eBay for $799.

    I’d love to have both the mitts and a cargo bike. It’s cold riding through the Fort at 1 a.m.
