Hi, I'm a new entry on Sydney Cyclist but just because I'm moving from Italy to Sydney (Balmain area) in few weeks. I've 3 children to carry everywhere and I would like to buy a cargo bike there.…Continue
I'm sure you will find the Christiania 2wheeler very easy to steer around corners if you are used to the cabby.
No doubt the trike takes a bit to get used to and should never be considered as a standard 2wheeler, they all have their…"
"Over the last few years my kids spent time at a schools in Rozelle and Lilyfield. I spent a lot of hours riding around Balmain in a Gazelle Cabby (with and without motor) going to various park and trying to get toddlers to sleep. I'm big,…"
I'm intensely researching cargo bike at the moment to carry 3 children as well. Commuting to the hills district, I think my hills are worse, or at least equal to balmain.

"All good advice so far. Gloworm is good, and Balmain is hilly. I do it on an electric-assist cargo bike with a 4-year old, and it's OK. With three kids....you'll need to be fit and strong. Balmain is a very beautiful part of Sydney though…"
"I ride to and from Balmain a couple of days per week (with cargo bike but without kids) and the hills and the sometimes ridiculous cycle shared paths would make it a challenge for a 3 wheeled bike. 3 Kids on a longtail would also be a challenge even…"
"Welcome to hilly Sydney. I have two cargo bikes, a Nihola trike and Yuba Mundo and they are used every day. But depending on where you live, if you live in a hilly spot then do consider electric assist. Our bikes have them and one of them (or both)…"
Hi, I'm a new entry on Sydney Cyclist but just because I'm moving from Italy to Sydney (Balmain area) in few weeks. I've 3 children to carry everywhere and I would like to buy a cargo bike there.
