This “Cargo Bike” Sports Some Serious Grunt…

Regular readers will know that I like quirky things, and that “different” modes of transport have often featured on the pages of this blog. In this instance, in the main courtyard Burg Satzvey castle in Mechernich, I find another vehicle to add to my collection. This time it is a tractor that’s been adapted to look and function like a typical Dutch “Bakfiets” (Cargo bike), with a front end attachment that can be used for hauling all manner of items. I assume that with the power of a tractor behind it, this vehicle can manage  everything from carting in wine cellar supplies to branches from tree trimming around the grounds. It’s a brilliant idea and I managed a good few photographs as the driver went past us, busy with his work.
