Seth Elliott

Ex-Owner/Operator of Pedalers Express

Carrboro, arrived: Spring '97

Originally From: Massachusetts

I started Pedalers Express in the fall of 1997 with a cargo bicycle called a Long Haul. These bikes are custom made in Eugene, Oregon where there is a similar courier business that I have modeled Pedalers Express after. Pedalers Express is the only bicycle courier service in the Triangle. I have since added a second cargo bike a trailer and a mountain bike to my delivery "fleet." Among my customers are copy shops, printers, university departments, accountants, local publications, graphic designers, travel agencies, and individual residents.

I serve on the Carrboro Transportation Advisory Board and hope to see Carrboro and Chapel Hill continue to become more and more bicycle friendly.

In my spare time, I enjoy writing, checking out local music, and going to movies with my wife Rachel.

   Officer Bob Murdaugh

Police Officer

Chatham County, arrived 1973 from Durham, NC

A two-time Duke University freshman, I came into law enforcement entirely by accident. Though I grew up in Durham, I always preferred the atmosphere in Chapel Hill.

The first time I saw a Carrboro officer it was in Dunkin Donuts on W. Franklin St. Not knowing that Carrboro was only a few blocks west, I thought he was a long way from home.

Carrboro is my adopted town for 23 years, but I enjoy motorcycle touring all over the United States.
