Cargo bikes are a simple, climate-friendly, and practical way of transportation. You can easily get to where you want to go without owning a car and deal with the hassle of parking spaces, garages, and traffic jams. Everyday exercise and the joy of movement are extra bonuses.
And compared to regular bikes, you can carry much more goods as cargo bikes have spacious cargo areas either at the front or back. Perfect for kids, dogs, grocery bags, equipment, and anything else you need to transport.
Nowadays, employers can also offer cargo bikes as a benefit to their employees, with many advantages for both companies and employees.
