Big Bike News!

I've been sitting on this news for a while now, until things were pretty much final. Now it's time to announce... that we're getting a new bike! It's been a long time coming & we've been hemming & hawing about this decision for over a year now, but we've finally decided & picked one out. We're going to buy a Yuba Mundo longtail cargo bike from the Bike Doctor this week!

Our new family vehicle!
While we do have two perfectly serviceable bicycles (& a couple more that are in need of service, ha!) & we can carry both children on them with a combination of MEC trailer &/or Adams trail-a-bike &/or iBert seat, we think a longtail cargo bike is going to better suit our needs. As a car-free family, this bike is going to be our station wagon, capable of carrying 200kg of cargo. We're going to have two child seats on the rear rack, so kid hauling will be a little simpler than our current setup.

I can't wait to bring our new bike home, get it all set up with accessories & tell you about it. Yup, you're coming along for the ride here on the blog & on my other social media channels too. If you're lucky, you might even get to come along for a ride literally--the Yuba Mundo can actually accommodate an adult passenger. :)

  1. Yay! Those Yubas look so terrific. I'm in the middle of installing a front pannier rack on my bike after getting the rear child seat. I feel like I've made my bike into a camel train! We're hoping to at least do return trips from school on the bike.

    1. Yay--bike 'camels' are awesome. Return trips from school will also be awesome--downhill all the way, right? :)

  2. I have been coveting those from afar!!!
    Didn't realise the bike dr has them. good to know!

    1. Well, if you ever make the leap from coveting to test riding... you know where to go. ;)
