The Best Cargo Bikes for Families

Many bike riders with young children worry that their days of riding have come and gone. They feel they need to say goodbye to their bicycle and hello to a minivan. It is possible to get around town on your bike with the kids in tow, thanks to cargo bikes. While there are many cargo bikes on the market, some are better than others when hauling kids.

Cargo Bikes

Cargo bikes are perfect for families because they provide more space. If you want to eliminate your carbon footprint or live a car-free lifestyle but need enough space for the whole family, cargo bikes are the way. Cargo bikes work great for both babies and older kids, so they can stay with you as your family grows. They also provide enough storage for all the items that come with a family, such as groceries, backpacks, and books.

One big decision you’ll have to make when purchasing a cargo bike is whether or not you should get an e-bike. An electric cargo bike is recommended if you:

  • Have multiple children
  • Will use the cargo bike as your primary source of transportation
  • Live in a hilly city or town
  • Have a long commute

The three main family cargo bikes to consider are:

  • Longtail Fitting up to three children, this bike is lightweight and agile
  • Front-Load Trike If you have a lot of kids to transport and want the most stability, this is your best bet
  • Longjohn This traditional family bike can fit lots of kids and gear
