There’s lots to love about travelling by cargo bike. The fresh air, the breeze in your hair, the fact that kids love it! There all valid reasons to ditch the car and get around by bike.
But for us the one thing that gets us on our bike more often than not is the convenience! Forget sitting in traffic jams, looking for car parks and trying to get kids in and out of car seats. For those of us in urban environments, we can generally access all we need in 15 mins by bike.
Heard of the 15 minute city? This is urban planning concept that all of life’s daily necessities and services can be accessed within a 15 min walk or ride, no matter where you are in a city. The great thing with a bike is it literally quadruples the size of the 15 minute perimeter compared to walking!
We found a great tool called Traveltime (its free!). Enter your location and let it show you where your 15 minute radius is by bike. You might be surprised at how much of your local neighbourhood is easily accessible
