Did you ever think you would live in a world in which it is convenient and practical to ditch your car and pick up a bike instead? With the current rise of electric transportation options, the Cargo eBike makes this possible for you and your family. Of course, a family cargo eBike won’t improve the bicycle infrastructure in your city, but it will allow you to easily haul kids, groceries, sports equipment, school backpacks, and whatever else you desire to take with you.
With many cargo eBike options on the market today, some are better than others, but how do you choose? Cargo eBikes can haul many things, but when it comes to carrying your most precious cargo, you want to make sure you make the right choice. To help make your decision easier, here are our top picks for cargo eBikes for families.
Cargo bikes are ideal for families trying to minimize car use and need a way to haul their kids. Unlike most child bike seats or trailers, cargo eBikes can be used for babies and “big” kids, making this an investment you will continuously reap the benefits. Cargo eBikes can be used as your primary source of transportation and carry all the stuff that comes with having kids – toys, diaper bags, car seats, books, backpacks, balance bikes, groceries, you name it. Cargo eBike can assist you in a city, over hills, on long commutes, or if you are just motivated by an eclectic assist.
There are generally two types of electric cargo eBikes: the front-loader and the longtail. Front-loader bikes, also known as Bakfiets or Long Johns, suspend a cargo box between the front wheel and the riders. The front-loader eBikes, or long johns, is the most traditional family eBike. It can be heavy when pedaling uphill, but it can carry many kids and gear. The longtail is generally the most agile and lightweight of the cargo bikes and extends to the bike’s rear. The longtail cargo eBikes can typically fit three children and maneuvers more like a regular bicycle.
The Urban Arrow Cargo eBike Family model brings electric bike safety with absolutely zero compromises. These bikes have a lowered children’s seat space for a lower center of gravity and, therefore, increased control and an expanded polypropylene box protecting precious cargo. Despite its heavy-duty protective features, the Family still has supreme agility and a comfortable ride.
Yuba’s Super Marché model is a long frame that’s unique and stylish. It’s a California-inspired version of the Dutch front-loading cargo bike and comes with an open loader, seat kit, and baseboard. These eBikes are designed for active parents and small business owners who commonly find themselves on the go and prioritize stability.
Electric Cargo Bikes play a significant role in this post coronavirus world, with more and more parents using them for their everyday commute. But, before ditching your car or MetroCard, you need to consider if an electric cargo bike is right for you and your family. Here are some things to think of:
