Andrew recently took advantage of the 'Try a GSD for a week for free' trial to see how it could be used in family life with his wife, an infrequent cyclist, and their two kids. Here's what he has to say about how it went.
I found the bike great fun to ride and very practical. It was quite liberating to be able to put a backpack on the front rack and the kids on the back, with space to put shopping etc in the panniers. I didn't have to worry about too little space for a fun outing. Electric Bikes Brisbane was highly responsive and genuinely interested in setting the bike up to meet our family's needs.

Lots. Going to swimming lessons, the park, the local supermarket, daycare, work as well as for local rides for fun with the kids on the bike path.
Yes, the handling while fully loaded with children was very good.
I think the GSD is a good candidate instead of a second car.
I ride to work and for recreation regularly however my wife is not a frequent cyclist. Having the ebike reduced some barriers such as hills but there will be more adjustment required with the general life arrangements and routines for her to use it as regularly.
Thinking about ditching the car for a cargo ebike? Tern Bicycles are offering a free trial of the famous Tern GSD for a week for you to try for yourself. It's a great way to prove to yourself why a cargo ebike is the way to go. Find out more about the #GSDWeek promo.
