Household move using bikes

Md. couple ditches moving van, uses bikes instead is the title of a Post article about a College Park couple, Anthony and Jess Reiss, who are carfree and were faced with the challenge of moving their household goods without a motor vehicle. With the help of friends they were able to make the move in about 2 hours.
At first, the idea of moving via bikes was a joke. That’s because moving their residence on bikes presented challenges, the most notable being that they would be moving their residence on bikes. 

But the joke turned into an idea, and the idea turned into a plan. Bicyclists from the community offered to help. A church group offered to help. A bike messenger from the District offered to help — a big coup because he had a trailer that could haul 300 pounds.

All told, about 25 people and bikes showed up.
Check out the video/slide show that documents their move:
