Ranae & the Packster 70.
01.03.2023 | Family
Since they started using a cargo bike for their daily routine, the life of this young family from Dublin has changed fundamentally. In the video, Ranae reports how the rides with the Packster 70 put the whole family in a good mood and why she can no longer imagine life without a cargo bike.
Ranae lives in Dublin City with her wife, two daughters and their dog. Everyday family life between children and full-time job is often stressful. Many days are marked by countless errands, shopping and trips with the children. In the past, there was usually little time left for Ranae herself.
Through the e-bike shop GreenAer, Ranae was able to test a Packster 70 without obligation. Can the cargo bike keep up with her busy family life? In the video, she talks about how the cargo bike gives her more freedom in planning her day, how good the extra time and exercise in the fresh air is for her - and how living together as a family is relaxed and more fun as a result.
» As someone who works full-time with two kids and a dog: I don‘t get much time for myself to go to the gym or do things that i like to do. So having the bike means that, no matter what happens on a day to day basis, i know that I’m gonna get some exercise and some fresh air. That has made a huge, huge impact to my mental health, and that again has an impact on the entire family. «
