New Bike Day: Packster 80

Nine weeks ago we placed an order for a new cargo bike: a Packster 80. It was built in Germany and slowly made its way here. Today we picked it up.

We bought it because it’s amazing, it will save us a bunch of time, will pay for itself surprisingly quickly, we love riding it, and our kids love riding in it.

I’m going to get great pictures of it and post them in the future, but here’s one from the shop floor.

The ride home was a good sign of enjoyment to come. I can’t comfortably ride an unmotorized bike with both kids on board now. They are too heavy, and it’s too hilly here! The Packster 80 ride was great. We took a slightly-indirect route home, riding around part of Green Lake and through Woodland Park.
