I’m a single mum of two children and I live in the centre of Cambridge. Where we live, we don’t have parking so I bought a cargo bike and it’s just the best thing I’ve ever done. Cambridge is really accommodating for cyclists – it’s the best way to get around with children. The bike has done us really well. I’ve used it less during lockdown as we’re not doing the school run, going into town etc. We’ve actually found we’re walking more instead.
