Pedaling Newborn Baby Kestrel home in a Portland Pedicab

Portland Pedicabs was honored to pedal home Kestrel, David and Katie’s newborn baby.

We arrived at the birthing center, ready to roll baby home for the first time.  The route was so pleasant and wonderful, cruising the SE Ankeny Neighborhood Greenway and pedaling past the Ladd’s Addition Rose Gardens.  Right as we departed, our good friends Timo and Esther rolled past on their bikes offering congratulations.

This was Katie and David’s second child.  We helped pedal home Jasper when he was born on Thanksgiving of 2009.  They are committed cycling activists that want to introduce their children to the world without a motor vehicle.  David handcrafted beautiful wooden boxes for a Yuba Mundo for carrying the kids!

It has been a great pleasure to watch Jasper grow at the different bike rides in Portland.  I look forward to watching Kestrel grow up in the community, as well.

Thanks for including Portland Pedicabs in your family’s important day!
