The volume of Bullitt’s visible at this year’s event was an incredible sight.
It is amazing to see all the colour variations in the flesh and talk to different people about their experiences with the Bullitt… How they use it, where they have travelled with it and how important it has become in their daily rituals. In that respect, the focus of the day becomes less about a bicycle race, but a celebration of the cargo bike and it’s utilitarian wonderfulness…
In response and acknowledgment of that, the Svajer of the Year Award was duly and most deservedly awarded to Klaus Bondam of the Danish Cyclist Federation and former Mayor of Copenhagen. Klaus has fought and campaigned tirelessly for more integrated and developed bicycle infrastructure for many, many years and has been a staunch supporter of the Bullitt and other cargo bikes since it’s inception.
