For the cyclist who rides around with more than a pannier can hold, Babboe creates the ultimate in two-wheeled urban commuting. The German birch box mounted on the bicycle's handsome charcoal grey galvanized steel frame can carry up to 100 kilograms of cargo or passengers. And with seven speeds, you can pedal that extra weight up the steepest of streets.

There's also the Burning Kiln Winery next door where you can wind down from your active day with a bottle of Cab Franc or Chardonnay.
