It’s that time of year when kids head back to school, and we’re here to help kick off the back-to-school spirit with our kids and parenting site Inhabitots. We recently spotted this sweet kids cargo bike by Republic Bike that is perfect for carrying book bags and lunches in its spacious wooden crate, and we’re teaming up with Republic Bike to give one away to some lucky kid. The countdown is on to enter the contest, so read on to learn how…
Kids Cargo Bike from Republic Bike Worth $349
The Kids Cargo Bike comes in a range of fun colors like “sour apple” and “magenta”, and encourages kids to embrace green commuting at an early age. The Republic Kids Cargo bike has three wheels, with two up-front around the wooden storage bucket, in an inverted tricycle design. Not only is it easier for kids to ride a kids cargo bike than a traditional two-wheeled bike, but the ample storage space with the wooden storage bin allows kids to tote around their book bags, lunches, water bottles, sports gear and other stuff without a clunky backpack swinging around on their back to throw them off balance. This fun ride encourages kids to get outdoors and get exercise, as well as riding to school. In addition to being a more eco-friendly commuting option than your minivan, biking to school gets your kid’s blood flowing in the am and provides the benefit of morning exercise before school which helps with concentration in class.
*Contest is only open to the lower 48 states for shipping reasons (sorry, that excludes residents of Alaska and Hawaii).
