Cambridge also prides itself on being a bit, um, eccentric. Non-conventional. Ok, Weird.
I was biking away from my Gilbert photoshoot, and saw one of the strangest things I've seen involved with a bike, which is really saying something. This woman was riding towards me, and I had to turn around, fumbling for my camera to try to get some snaps before she disappeared.
So I don't know with absolute certainty, because I didn't catch her, but I'm 99% certain that that's a mobile dog bed. A trailer for her dog.
Not that this isn't actually a great thing for the dog. My dog would love to come along on a lot of things that involve a ride too long for him to walk. Two weeks ago when I took him to the Arboretum for example ( he loves the lilacs!).
If I were really car free instead of just car-light, I would have had to find a way to take him, and this would seem to be a good solution. Except for the fact that he wouldn't stay on the bed, but that's another story. Only in Cambridge.
