Locali Icycle gets ready to roll

May 22, 2009 | 12:20 pm


The Locali Icycle that we mentioned a few weeks ago-- a custom-built adult tricycle equipped with a freezer -- has finally arrived and is almost ready to roll. The "conscious convenience" store's owners, Melissa Rosen and Greg Horos, plan to decamp it to assorted points throughout Hollywood, the Eastside and downtown; they're also considering occasional pit stops on the Westside, in Culver City and along La Brea Avenue in Mid-City West.

What's going to be in that freezer? Locali's house-made snow cones flavored with diabetic-friendly Xylitol; single-serving size containers of Carmela's gelato, already wildly popular among farmer's market regulars; Popshop's vegan popsicles in flavors like mojito and avocado vanilla; raw vegan cheesecake; and more. Rosen and Horos had hoped to roll out during Memorial Day weekend, but due to permitting issues,the Icycle won't be pedaling its frozen treats until June.
