Cargo bikes are becoming an increasingly popular way for families to get around, with many parents starting to think about swapping their car for one. There’s great financial, environmental and health benefits to using a cargo bike over a car, but how do you possibly choose which cargo bike is the correct one for your family?

There was a wide range of bikes to test, some with e-assist and others without. There were cargo bikes where your child can sit in front of you, and others where the child sits behind. Some had two wheels, others three. Some cargo bikes were huge, and others very compact. Some are suitable for babies, others for older kids.

As you can see from all the different cargo bikes I test rode, it’s impossible to pick just one cargo bike and say it’s the best for all families. I personally prefer two-wheelers, but other families will prefer a three-wheeler and some will find the Rickshaw indispensable.
