Choosing the right kid’s bike. A parent’s perspective

I love bikes! You generally don’t start a bike company if you don’t! I also love getting my kids out and about on bikes. It’s almost a rite of passage in Australia for kids to spend their youth getting around by bike in their suburbs or at a caravan park over the christmas holidays. I get asked from time to time about kid’s bikes. This is certainly not my area of domain expertise but I …

Our Buy Now Pay Later Partners

Tribe Bikes featured on Newy with Kids blog

It was great to chat to the Newy With Kids blog recently about how Cargo Biking has changed our lives, and some of our favourite rides around our home town of Newcastle. Check out the full story here.

It’s a question we’ve been asked a few times now, so we thought it deserved some attention. How safe is it really to cargo bike with kids? It’s a reasonable question to ask. When you load your precious cargo into a vehicle that is not equipped with carseats, airbags, crumple zones, etc you can feel a little exposed, particularly as we have had the message of safety features of cars drilled in for our whole …

Our afternoon video adventure

We had a day recently where after raining all afternoon, the weather finally cleared up for an afternoon adventure. We had 4 kids with energy to burn, so we got them to the beach and the park and had some fun rides in between. See a short clip of our adventure below.

Tribe Bikes Featured on NBN News

We had a blast filming a story with Newcastle’s NBN News recently.

The crew had a great time recording the story, with Jake the cameraman riding passenger in one of the …
