72 pounds in trailer!

This is near the limit of what a BOB can do, but definitely manageable. The steering was somewhat vague; I took it slow and had no problems. A couple of passerbys in cars seemed amazed.

Although Arcata is a bike-friendly community and you do see a constant stream of cyclists, most are recreational. It's still somewhat unusual to see a cyclist who is hauling freight.

When it comes to walkers, you see a diverse collection of determined looking exercisers, many in full "exercise costume" However, very few people are simply walking to get somewhere until you get close to the business district.
