Stuart I'll also link to the family section.
We are selling our Cargo Trike, be purchased it from practical cycles in Portland OR. last summer, and are only passing it on to another family as we have 3 kids to race around with now and have bought a bigger cargo trike!
It can be seen here, I believe they are the only US stockists for these amazing bikes they retail for $3400 and cost $600 to ship from the store to a business address, this bike is already here on the East coast!! This also comes with a second brand new all black rain cover, the additional chain lock and up graded pedals and seat! the cockpit is really adjustable so people big and small can ride it, its super comfortable and easy to ride, I did the tweed ride with 80lbs of kids in the front and numerous snacks and drinks as well! (in tweed!)

"The Nihola is the ideal transportation choice for families. There is plenty of room for kids, groceries, and even the family dog! Nihola cargo tricycles are admired worldwide for their exceptional ease of riding and safety.
Unlike most tricycles, the Nihola is known for its easy and predictable handling. The front wheels turn with linkage as in a car, so they move independently of the frame. Sophisticated Ackerman steering geometry dramatically improves cornering ability. A hydraulic steering damper provides great steadiness, even at high speeds. The cabin's floor is well below the level of the axles, for a low center of gravity resulting in extraordinary balance and stability.
The Nihola puts safety first with a steel-frame cabin that surrounds and protects your kids. The cabin is built up as a strong double tube frame without corners. It consists of horizontal top and bottom steel tubes. The tubes are welded together with five strong vertical steel sections. This construction ensures that a car bumper will always hit one of the vertical steel sections that guard the children in the event of a crash.
The Nihola is proudly produced under fair working conditions in environmentally friendly Danish and German factories.
Further details about the Nihola:
Maintenance free steering
Special tools are not required to remove the front wheels.
The gear cable is standard length.
The frame is covered in strong powder coating.
The rear-end is the same as an ordinary bike.
The frame is built up of quality steel tubes.
All polished fittings are made of stainless steel.
All bolts, nuts and washers that are available in stainless steel are used.
Top quality aluminium wheel rims both front and back.
The nihola Family cargo bike is our most popular model for families with children.
The Family cargo bike can carry up to 100 kg 220lb in the cabin and there is space for 2 children of up to the age of 7-8 years old on the bench.
As an alternative a carry cot or car seat can be used in the bottom of the cabin and a child or adult can sit on the bench. The bench can easily be removed without tools (if for example you want to fit just a carry cot).
The cabin, which surrounds and protects the children, gives extra peace of mind because the frame is built up of a closed double tube frame without corners consisting of top and bottom frame tubes that are welded together with 5 vertical steel sections.
