Weekly Shopping with the Bullit

Sunday, May 26, 2019



On average, I do 90-110 trips with the bicycles every month.

We have a mix of bicycles.

The Bullit cargo bike proved to be so versatile: transporting children, big bags, shopping trips. I use it about 10-20% of my trips

The other 80% I do with my e-bike, and also to some extent trips with my kick-scooter, or public bike sharing, either Villo!, Billy Bike, or Uber.

According to my stats, 90% of my trips are below 7 km, and last only 10-15 minutes.

If I imagine that I would do all these trips by car... even a small car... that would 1100-1300 more trips added of pollution, congestion, noise to this otherwise beautiful city.

On the picture, is a typical setup for the weekly shopping with our cargo bike.
I can add about three fully packed IKEA bags, between 100-150 kg.
Usually, I also use our Andersen Shopper trailer, for bulky items. It can carry about 40kg.

    i wish I had more bike friendly paths. I have done a few shopping trips by bike but it takes an hour longer than by car. But I bike and walk as much as I can to reduce pollution!

    Good for you!

    I do it by car, traffic and distances around here makes bikes problematic.
