Everything You Need To Know In One Video

How do I properly secure my kids aboard a cargo bike? What are the rules of the road? What kind of maintenance is needed for my electric cargo bike? These are just some of the questions that people may ask themselves when thinking about joining the cargo bike community. It’s not unusual to need a little bit of clarification – that’s why we created this video! Our Electric Cargo Bikes 101 is here to provide some helpful tips and tricks, as well as hopefully answer your questions about all things electric cargo bikes. 

The Electric Cargo Bikes 101 – New Rider Tips For Safe Cycling are important to not only better inform riders on how to safely enjoy their cargo bikes, but also inspire the wider cargo bike community to take initiative to encourage safer cycling as a whole.

So let’s use our resources to make our roads and trails safer for everyone – bikes, cars, pedestrians, even our doggos ☺️

Electric Cargo Bikes 101 – New Rider Tips For Safe Cycling

Getting Started: Before heading out, there are a few important things to do before every ride. Check your tires, your battery, and your lights before you take off!

Riding With Kids: Learn how to properly secure the most precious cargo. Don’t forget to secure and stabilize your bike whenever onboarding passengers!  

Riding With Adults: Riding with adult passengers is slightly different from riding with kids. See what’s important when carrying adults – lean together through turns, and keep all arms and legs secure on the bike! 

Riding With Cargo: See how to secure your cargo the right way – tie down and tuck away!

Riding Etiquette:Learn about some basic forms of etiquette every rider should be aware of. Speed limits, stop signs, passing, pets, and more!

Maintenance & Upkeep: See what’s needed to ensure that your bike is ready for many rides to come. Wipedowns at home, and occasional professional check-ups make all the difference!
