Making a monster bike

Summer holidays can feel like they go on forever and, towards the end of it, the days just seem to repeat themselves. So, after being strapped in a pram for weeks, endless play dough sessions, never-ending rolling around in blankets, curtains and laundry and working nightshifts building things with bricks, my son had just had enough. Was there nothing better to do?

Why we love our cargo bike

I love cycling. I’d commuted to work for over 7 years in London before I had children and I loved the freedom and flexibility it gave me. Having children was joyous, but it was a big change – prams, napping and the safety of something so small meant cycling was on hold for a bit. However, once my daughter got bigger and more robust I was happy to gain a second hand wee-rider seat and start going places again. We did it, and it was fun!
