About your host

I've been running a social enterprise called CarryMe Bikes all about cargobikes &helping families get mobile by bicycle since 2012, and I've also been an Airbnb host since 2010! I've been living in East London since 2007 and I've known the area since 1999, so know it inside out. I've taken cycle instructor training, First Aid training (we're so unlikely to be needing it, though!) and I deal with…

What we’ll do

We'll be kitting you and your kids out with cargobikes to take you on a cool tour cycling to fun, child-friendly destinations locally to East London such as the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Hackney Marshes, and Victoria Park. We can ride the cargobikes with the kids inside and you can ride a 'normal' bike, or you can have a go being the cargobike pilot! If you ride a bike often already, you'll…

What else you should know

Most of our route will not be on the roads and streets, it will mostly be alongside canals and in parks. But there will be a small amount of on-road cycling! We will shepherd you safely.

What I’ll provide

Transport
Cargobikes & bicycles From CarryMe Bikes C.I.C. You can choose to ride a 'normal' bike; drive a cargobike; or be a passenger inside a cargobike!
Equipment
optional helmets; blanket

What to bring

Closed-top shoes with sturdy soles for cycling (not ballet pumps or sandals)
rainjacket etc for yourselves and your kids
warm layers of clothing especially for the kids who won't be cycling (just sitting)
In the summer, sunglasses and/or cap/hat with visor to wear instead of or underneath a helmet
Water! Cycling can be thirsty work. And little snacks for when we're on the move.
If your kids get bored, bring something they can entertain themselves with in the cargobike e.g. book, teddybear

Where you'll be

Our bicycle tour using our unique cargobikes goes along the canals and rivers of East London, taking in some cool parks and family-friendly activities. In the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park there are splash fountains, climbing walls, wildflower gardens, cute paths and secret views! Using our cargobikes we can take the whole family all at once and access places that cars can't go, covering loads more ground than on foot, easily carrying everything!
