Cargo Tales, Pt. 7: The Ims

April 12, 2021 2 min read

During February, we offered families from five different schools around Wellington the opportunity to take the Yuba Spicy Curry bike home for an extended test ride, to give the cargo lifestyle a go.

We thought it would be fun to share some of the stories that we received from the families who took part. We hope that these may inspire some of you who have been considering making the jump to two wheels to come in and take a bike home for an extended test ride of your own.

This episode we present to you the story of The Ims in the form of a great little video!



In 250 words or less tell us the most important ways riding a cargobike made a positive difference to your family.

The kids absolutely loved it, helped us get out the door. More exercise made us happier. On a time poor day our pooch could gallop alongside! It made us feel good about what we were doing for the environment. Whizzing past traffic felt AMAZEBALLS!


Tell us a fun story from your time riding the cargobike.

Our 3 year old decided to take some music on the ride to childcare and she was arm pumping along Evans Bay Parade like a looney. I was riding behind her and my hubby and trying to catch it on film, but turns out my balance isn't good enough to film, ride and laugh!!


What surprised you the most about riding the cargobike?

Our children roared with glee down all the hills, arms in the air, like they were on a theme park ride!


In your childrens own words, how do they describe riding the cargobike.

"It's fun to go real fast without a seatbelt!"


Any further comments or feedback regarding the trial?

We loved it, we are saving up for one. So cool all the adaptions that can be made as your family evolves. Ideally Timbo would be able to get all his photography equipment into it so he could ride to shoots in the city and save on stress and parking!


Thanks for your story The Ims!

If you liked this post then make sure to have a look on our blog using the filter 'Family Rides' because we have a bunch of other stories we have or will be releasing soon.
