Dutil built most of the copper-topped wood cart himself, with a little help from Flowt Cycles, Lou Brown and others. It’s up for its health inspection this week. After that, you can catch it at summer events all around town. The trailer contains batteries that power the bike and the fridge – and the sound system that gets the kids running after it.
