I’ve been writing about cargo biking for over 10 years.
In late 2018 I opened a bike shop in Colorado dedicated to family biking because it felt like
With all this growth, it can feel like our movement is more fragmented mainly due to selection, limited dedicated cargo bike shops, and sources for information. My hopes for creating Cargo Bike Life is to pull together resources from brands, fellow shops, and most importantly – daily riders of the cargo bike life to create a community place to learn, grow, and evolve this life-changing movement.
3 Goals for the Cargo Bike Life
First Goal and Priority is the Cargo Bike Database – A database of available cargo bikes, key features, important attributes, filtered search, and a place for people to share their experience with the bike.
This list of important attributes was compiled from asking cargo bike owners and potential cargo bike buyers what was important to them in the process. The filtered list won’t be exhaustive but if enough people ask about a specific attribute to be added to the filters I will add it moving forward. It is easy enough to add it to the description area but making it a unique filter takes a bit more time. My biggest hope is to engage the daily riders of the product listed in the Cargo Bike Database to leave reviews and stories of their experience within the product pages. Brands, if you would like your products added quickly I can send you a template to fill out on your end to help me populate the information!
The Second Goal is Creating Content – Stories, reviews, and experiences living the #cargobikelife. I’m pretty dedicated to
The Third Goal is the Shift Up Podcast – The Shift Up podcast will be moved and found on Cargo Bike Life in the future. More on this topic also in the future.
