Cargo Bikes for the Everyday Adventurers

This is not a bicycle. It’s the carpool fan fave. It’s a wellness vehicle. It’s free parking. Xtracycle builds strong, capable bikes invented for carrying kids and cargo. We’re here for the everyday stuff, every day. Xtracycle is pure freedom and functionality—thriving, not driving.

The things people say these days.

We love our community of wacky, zany, and edgerunning Xtracycle Riders. Curious what they think of their bike? Lucky for us they’ve decided to share their thoughts. You might think we only pick the good ones.

Our Story

Progenitors of Awesome

Way back in 1998, a youthful Xtracycle dreamed of inventing an everyday bike for everyday people—a stupefyingly bold idea—given that the “golden age” of cargo bikes had long come and gone.

Our curiously catalytic founder returned from extensive world travels—compelled to craft a simple two-wheeled steed that maybe, just maybe, could normalize bikes as everyday transport.

Almost by accident—(can I surf this thing?)—we rediscovered a funner way to get around. That feeling of gliding past traffic, wind in our sails—the sheer glee of having our favorite people there with us for the ride. We hadn’t felt that way since we were kids!

To our utter delight (and admittedly, some surprise), our humble designs ignited a cargo bike movement that is now inspiring millions into grabbing life by the bars and following us down a path less-pedalled. These everyday active-ists are shifting the course of human transportation toward a more brilliant future—for us and all our fellow crew members on spaceship Earth. 

You might just have to ride to believe.
