Not sure an electric cargo bike is worth the investment? Here we run through ten ways a e-cargo bike can easily fit into your daily life.
All ELECTRIC CARGO BIKES
HOME AND FAMILY
1. The School and nursery run. Yes, you can use the car but it’s not teaching your children healthy habits and getting parked is likely a nightmare. While walking might be an alternative for some families, it might be too far for little legs and then you have to think about your onward journey back home, to the gym etc too. An electric cargo bike is fun, quick and very practical. The electric-assist means you won’t arrive too hot and bothered either when carrying a kids bike seat with child.
2. Shopping. Electric cargo bikes can carry quite hefty loads. Far more than you’d think! Just adjust the electric assist up a bit on the way home and you won’t even feel the load you’re carrying.
3. Your daily commute. If you carry more than a small handbag to work, you might think a bike isn’t practical. But with an e-cargo bike you can take your sports kit for that after work workout, an overnight bag for business trips and anything else you might need. Plus, you can even pick up a passenger with the Tern GSD.
4. Moving house. Yes really! You might not fit that double wardrobe on there but it’s more than capable of carrying a few suitcases and boxes. Perfect if you want to encourage your teenager to fly the nest
TRY AN ELECTRIC CARGO BIKE
Like a car – but so much more sustainable, versatile and healthier – buying an e-cargo bike is a big decision. If you’re daunted by the decision, remember you can take an electric cargo bike for a demo to see how it would fit in to your daily life. The cost of the demo will be taken off the cost of your bike or given to you in a gift voucher so you’re no worse off for trying one out.
PAYING FOR AN ELECTRIC CARGO BIKE
If you then decide to buy, there are a number of payment options. For both families and businesses, there are interest free loans available from the Energy Saving Trust along with other credit options too. Read more here
