As the start of school got closer for our 5 year old, I knew I was physically going to struggle with the school run twice a day with a baby in a pram and a 4 year old, despite living less than a kilometre from the school. Driving wasn’t an option, as parking at the school was limited, I would have had to park a distance away, lift the pram out of the car and still walk. Two weeks into the school year, I was struggling. Each weekend, I wasn’t able to take the children on outings as I stayed home to recover to make it through the following week. Things had to change. We initially purchased the Nihola 4.0 to do the school run. Having never cycled in Melbourne before, I was nervous to do more than that, but once I realised how safe and easy to manoeuvre the bike is, we soon started riding to childcare as well. Then, I was choosing to use the bike for more and more outings and errands.
The car sits in the driveway.
