An e-cargo bike is electric-powered and usually has a storage area in the front of the bike. The location of the storage area allows for easy maneuvering. One huge benefit of electric cargo bikes is that they make stopping and starting easier, making carrying loads easier than with a traditional cargo bike.
Electric cargo bikes are an excellent investment, but one needs to take steps to ensure their safety and that of others. Before hitting the road with your new ride, it’s essential to make sure you know how to ride your bike correctly. While longtail cargo bikes are the easiest to ride, there’s still a learning curve for riding all cargo bikes.
We suggest practicing on different terrains and with different loads before heading out. While it shouldn’t take long to learn how to ride an electric cargo bike, there is still a learning curve. Consider taking your cargo bike to an empty parking lot to practice how to use it. Familiarize yourself with the tilt system and how to steer.
When loading your cargo bike with goods, make sure to distribute the weight evenly. Uneven weight distribution creates a shaky ride, and you might find yourself tilting to one side. Also, make sure to use straps to secure your goods. You do not want to lose anything on your travels.
