In this photo taken Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013, Heidi Lappetito pedals her cargo bike past a parked beer truck as she hauls a trailer loaded with frozen salmon in Port Townsend, Wash. Nearly all deliveries of the wild Pacific salmon the Cape Cleare Fishery makes to its local customers is done by cargo bikes hauling loads of up to 180 pounds, about five miles into town. People in the Pacific Northwest are pushing the limits of what they can carry using so-called cargo bikes, shuttling children, groceries, fish and kegs of beer. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
