My Local Life
Friends and mothers Anna Cribb and Katy Pullinger tested eBikes with Bosch drives for a week in southern England – and discovered that the eBike is also ideal for transport for a family with small children.
Katy and I have been friends for twelve years. We have known each other since childhood. After Katy and I became mothers, we moved with our husbands from London to the south of England to raise our kids on the wonderful Dorset coast. For our everyday mobility, we have always used minivans, simply because we believed at that point that cars were the most practical means of transportation for our five children. Certainly more time in fresh air, getting around more with a bicycle – that would be great. But so far it seemed absolutely unrealistic, since Ivy, Tilda and Ozzy couldn’t ride bicycles themselves yet.
Then we got this request from Bosch: “Would you like to test eBikes for a week and do a self-experiment of sorts?” We quickly made up our minds: Yes. We would. And we looked forward to it. Would eBikes meet our requirements? Would they do for getting to work or taking the kids to school? Can you use them for shopping and running errands? How will Pedelecs fit into our leisure? Can we use the bikes to do family trips to the beach or to the park? We tested the eBikes in our everyday life: seven days of cycling together with our kids.
Coast Surf Café
The boys are at school, now we have some time for ourselves. At the Coast Surf Café I meet up with Katy and Ivy. Over a cup of tea, we are discussing the next installment for our Youtube channel „Heymummytv“ and the things that are on our minds. We never run out of topics. We’re girls!
