Bring a little bit of Dutch style into your life and spend a little less time in the car on the school-run and shopping trip.
The Bakfiets Cargo Bike is an everyday sight in European towns and cities, especially in Holland. It's safe, sturdy and Practical!
The wooden box incorporates a folding bench (an extra one can be added) and straps to hold your children in place. Rain Covers are available to keep your cargo dry and special see-thru 'tents' are available to keep your children dry but still give them a good view of the road! (see the Bakfiets Accessory page here)The bikes are available in 7 and 8 speeds - all hub gears so not only are they wide in range but also sealed from the elements and thus 'low maintenence'. A dynamo hub and front light is also standard on all models (rear light is battery operated).
Hub (roller) brakes are available on the 7 and 8 speed bikes .A long and short version is available so your choice is how many children you wish to transport and how much cargo you wish to pedal.
Electric Assist Bakfiets Bike
Available as a factory-fitted option on all Bakfiets Bikes or Trikes. It is worth the while especially if you are using the Bakfiets regularly as a school run/shopping bike or a work/delivery bike. Please contact us for more details or have a look at the Bakfiets information page on electric assist.
Colours: Red and black are easily obtainable but other colours can be ordered without too long a wait. Contact us if you'd like something other than red or black! Delivery time on Bakfiets is currently about 4-6 weeks from ordering as the factory in Holland is very busy!

We have a Long, 8 speed version here to test ride at all times along with a child rain tent. Feel free to come and try it out - we have a 20 mile traffic free cycle path yards from our door along the flat beautiful Ribble Estuary and Fylde Coast. Please make an appointment to test ride a Bakfiets.
Bakfiets Trike available for test rides now!
The Bakfiets trike is also available to order. It is similar to the two wheeled bike in terms of parts, etc however it has three wheels not two! The Trike is available in standard size and Extra Wide. It can accommodate upto 4 children and comes with two benches as standard. A child rain tent and raincover are available. The toddler and baby seats that are available for the 2 wheeled Bakfiets can also be used in the trike too.
The trike is extremely stable and capable of carrying really heavy loads. It is also easy to steer and is good for those who worry about their balance when riding with children and large loads - it's hard to fall off a trike.
Bakfiets XL Transport
This is the longest Bakfiets bike available. It is aimed at those wanting to move heavy and bulky loads and for business use. The bike comes with a flat bed load area but this can be removed to allow customised containers to be fitted for business and delivery use.
The bike can also be factory fitted with electric assistance which is ideal for those using the bike all day, with heavy loads and in hilly areas! The range for the electric assist version is upto 50km dependent on load carried and terrain.
We have a demo XL Transport bike in our showroom with a customised box fitted. The bike is also an electric assist one so please contact us if you'd like to arrange a test ride and consultation on how the Bakfiets XL Transport can help your business grow - ecologically!
