Parent’s talk of how they are able to slow down and enjoy intimate moments with their children that were once lost in the busyness of life, and how they are quietly inspiring others to do the same. They also talk of how they are creating memories for their children, which they wish they had had during their own childhood. They talk about how good it feels to live a more sustainable and connected life and how willing they share their stories with people they had not met before in their neighbourhood because a conversation started over their fascination with the bakfiets.

Are these the original bakfiets?
Yes, the one and only, Bakfiets.nl bakfiets. Once you feel the ride you will understand why!
Are the cargobikes hard to ride?
No. They feel a little different from a traditional bicycle, but you will quickly get used to it. It is best to start without your kids (Tip: Don’t let your kids see the cargobike until after you have had your test ride) or cargo to get used to it first. Not long after your initial ride, it will feel as natural as a regular bicycle.
Do I have to hold the bike while my kids climb in?
No, thanks to Bakfiets.nl, and their typical attention to detail, they have invented and patented a “stabilio” parking stand, which allows your kids to safely climb in and out themselves.
