The first time I saw a cargo bike I fell in love. Well my first thoughts were actually, “what on earth is that?” immediately followed by, “I love it!” Here was this mom hopping on a bike with her two kids—sitting in a box in the front happily playing together—and here I was hauling my kids out of the car and feeling frazzled after traversing through traffic. I didn’t give it a second thought, I ran after her with kids in tow to ask her what this bike was and where I could find one. Once home I took this information and did some research. I discovered that cargo bikes were a relatively new idea in Canada and that a few cargo bikes were available, but I also learned that cargo bikes have been around for decades in Europe and that they continue to be incredibly popular in places like Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands. After looking around I could see that these countries have had the time to truly perfect the cargo bike and that the bikes available there were built to last, carry more and ride better. I thought, “This is what I want!” and I know that others here in Victoria would want it too. That’s when Vic Bikes Family & Cargo was born.
Cargo bikes (utility bikes, cycle trucks, longtails, bakfiets, box bikes and cargo trikes) do so much more than get you places—they carry kids, haul groceries, transport supplies and can even be a mobile business. These bikes can replace your car, save you money and offer a better lifestyle. Vic Bikes Family & Cargo provides you with bikes from the most trusted brands and designers out there.
