1. Longtail or Midtail Cargo Bike
These bikes were built to haul the heavy loads in the back of the back. Each brand offers a variety of compatible accessories to customize as your family grows and needs change. On most models, start with Thule Yepp Maxi for your 1 to 6 year olds, Tern offers the Clubhouse+ for mid-sized kiddos, and mid-sized to grown ups can cruise in the Captain's Chair. Technically, you could drop them off at college and beyond... if they'll let ya!
You can also add a variety panniers, baskets, and racks to haul books, backpacks, lunchboxes, sports gear, and dioramas.
2. Front Loader
You guessed it: the Front Loader carries your passengers... up front! While the size of these rides can be a little intimidating, once you hop on you'll find they're natural and easy to ride with a long wheel base and low center of gravity. When it comes to your kiddos (or furry friends!), the Front Loader is a great option if you'd like to keep an eye on them while you're making memories together.
