A cargo bike to transport your child
Long used for the transport of goods and then abandoned in favour of cars, the cargo bike is once again becoming a fashionable vehicle for city dwellers looking for an economical and ecological means of transport to travel short distances in the city. Families and parents are numerous among cargo bike riders. Indeed, this type of transportation is extremely healthy and convenient even for transporting children. The AddBike team imagined and designed the ideal cargo bike, the U-Cargo, for families as well as an AddBike + conversion kit for transporting a child. Whether you want to go for a weekend ride with your family, to go to nursery, school or the park, to take your toddlers to extracurricular activities or simply to go shopping, you will love your new cargo bike and your young children will too!
Why choose a cargo bike for your family?
In often congested urbain areas, where each journey seems to be a source of stress, the alternative of the bicycle takes a more than predominant place. All the more so as urban developments, and in particular cycle paths, are increasingly making family cycling safer. It is not uncommon for your journey to be much shorter by cargo bike than by car thanks to certain reserved lanes. Cargo bikes are above all the freedom to move around with peace of mind for both parents and their children. In France, 40% of daily car journeys are less than 2 kilometres long. Finally, you save stress and time on your journey and parking, but also fuel and therefore money!
The other advantage of the cargo bike is its carbon footprint… which is almost zero! Using your car for short distances and in the city consumes a lot of gas and produces significant CO2 emissions. The cargo bike alternative for the whole family reduces your environmental impact, especially for active families who make a lot of short trips by car. This mode of transport is an excellent way to raise your children’s awareness of the environment and a more sustainable lifestyle, but also to give them a taste for cycling.
Another advantage is that the purchase of a cargo bike is very economical compared to that of a car or a motorbike, especially as a number of public authorities encourage the adoption of this mode of transport with financial aid.
