Bellabike Cargo Bike for 3 – Looking for a New Family to Change Their Lives

annies bellabike cargo bike

Here’s what the customer says about her Bellabike Cargo Bike.

I’m finally getting round to selling my trusty bellabike and wondered whether you knew of anyone who may be interested, before I try elsewhere.

It’s been a brilliant piece of kit, and it changed life for me when the kids were small.  I could get three (dry!) children to 2 different schools efficiently, whilst chatting with them, park in playground, leave baby in bike safely while dropping others, and get home having had a good bit of exercise!  I’d totally recommend it

The bike is about 4 years old and has been religiously serviced by the owner and covered. It is based in Sevenoaks, Kent.

Offers in region of £1,000. (New retail value currently £2,200)

Danish Cargo Bike with an Australian Flavour

Winther Cargo bikes are renowned in Denmark for their quality in both components and riding chara.cteristics, and we agree with that too here at Kids and Family Cycles. So we are delighted to see that they are adding a range of cargo bikes to their Winther Kangaroo cargo trike range.

The aptly Ausssie name, Wallaroo, completes the cargo bike Winther range,  and has it’s history as a joint design project with the designers of the Bullitt cargo bike, means that it means business too.

Options are available for your cargo bike to carry either pure cargo or you can add a luxurious cabin to carry children too.

At least I can Look forward to doing the school run later on my cargo bike…….and I know the boys are always excited when I roll up in the cargo bike rather than the stuffy hot car!

A British Contender in the Cargo Bike World

COMING SOON TO KIDS AND FAMILY CYCLES 

Boxer manufacturing the finest trikesKids and Family Cycles had  a sneak preview before the official launch of the new British Boxer brand of electric Cargo bikes/trikes.

We loved the ride and attention to detail, and the fact that the factory is a stone’s throw away from us felt like a British win at Wimbledon.

At last a British brand enters the cargo bike world.

Prices start from £2,880, so very competitive pricing compared to the Danish/Dutch Electric Cargo trikes counterparts, and some lovely additional unique features are available too, like the children’s bike rack carrier- £120. Buggy carrier – £120.

For those safety conscious amongst us, there is also an impressive indicator lights accessory(optional – £450), which are a  major advance on offerings from other cargo trike manufacturers, and it makes the Boxer cargo bike highly visible on the roads, which makes total sense as it is full of precious cargo.

Watch this space.

Our demo bike should be arriving very soon to join the best fleet of cargo bikes and trikes in the UK….and probably the world.

Book your appointment today on 07535 49 33 01 to come and test ride our range to find the right cargo bike for you.

We are open weekends too.

We advise that you book your appointment early to avoid missing the day you are wanting to travel to our workshop.
