Life is Better On A Cargo Bike

What if someone told you biking can be easier, and better, than driving? That you could spend more quality time with your family, keep the car in the garage, help the environment, and even save money? Wouldn’t that be worth it?

We got in touch with our riders to hear what riding an Xtracycle means for their lives.

Simplify How You Get from A to Beyond

Simplify How You Get from A to Beyond


When it comes to simplifying our busy lives it’s easy to fall into the trap of compromising what we want for ourselves and our family for the sake of perceived ease. But spoiler alert, bikes are way more convenient than we often consider, and a trustworthy e-cargo bike is incredibly more capable at taking you through daily life than you might expect.

Less Stress, One Pedal At a Time

Speaking of busy lives, can we talk about stress? No matter where you live, traffic and lugging kids around is tedious work. Add in a work commute and it’s the perfect daily recipe to put anyone on edge.

Now picture cruising right past the gridlock, and skirting the pick-up line at school. Imagine the smiles and laughter as you whisk your kids home along quiet back streets and scenic trails. How would it feel to have moved your body today instead of sitting idly behind the wheel?

Time On the Bike is Quality Time

This is the childhood you want for your kids. And really, the parenthood you’re after, too. On a cargo bike together, you’re immersed in the world around you – seeing the sights, feeling the breeze, soaking up the sunshine as a family. It’s quality time in its truest form.

Riding together plants seeds in young hearts and minds – seeds of adventure, physical activity, freedom, and appreciation for family time and the outdoors. This is joy-filled memory-making at its finest.

Making an Investment in Your Family

At the end of the day, integrating cargo biking into your family's lifestyle is about so much more than just transportation. It's a chance to prioritize quality time, healthy living, environmental awareness, and create joyful childhood memories.

Those little daily adventures and bonding moments on the bike will be something you and your kids cherish forever. And as children grow and want to ride independently, so can your adventures, hauling picnic spreads and riding to little league alongside your family. Or for your own errand runs and rejuvenating solo rides.

An Xtracycle will always be there for you.
