We’ve talked a lot about how an ebike can help you climb hills, haul groceries, and master your commute (Not to mention survive a zombie invasion!), but one of our favorite uses for an electric bike is grabbing the kids and hitting the streets for some Halloween fun.
Here are five ways a RadWagon electric cargo bike can help you scare up a good time with the family.
1. They Have a Sweet Cargo Capacity
Do you ever steal a piece of two of your kid’s Halloween candy? Don’t worry. 79 percent of parents fess up to skimming off the top.
If this sounds like you, then it’s probably a safe bet that you’re invested in how much candy your kiddo can get each year. That’s where an ebike comes in.
The average pillowcase can hold 1,690 pieces of candy. Let's say you weigh about 180 lbs, your child weighs 50 pounds, and a snack-size candy bar weighs 17 grams. With the RadWagon, you'd be able to carry up to 3,201 of those sugar bombs back home with you.
2. They Put the “Care” in “Scare”
If you’re planning on goblin’ down that candy, it’s worth remembering that ebikes are a great way to squeeze in a workout.
For every hour you ride an electric bike (vigorously and with a minimal level of pedal-assist), you can burn somewhere around 440 calories. That adds up to about 5 1/2 fun-sized chocolate bars!
3. You Can Enjoy Bone Dry Rides
While your family’s resident Trick or Treaters may be in the Halloween spirit, there’s always the chance that fall weather can spoil the evening.
A RadWagon can keep your little monsters happy and comfortable through the long haul when you equip it with accessories designed for more family time.
A caboose, deckpad, deckhand, and running boards can transform your RadWagon into a VIP ride for up to two kids, but when you add on a conestoga, you can also keep them dry when there’s a sudden downpour.
4. More Views, More Boos!
For years, Trick or Treat routes were limited by how far your kids can walk. With a RadWagon, you open the family up to more possibilities.
With 45+ miles per charge, you can visit your friends across town, stop by the big open-air party downtown, and even check out that house a few miles away that went all-in with their decorations this year.
5. They're Always Down to Dress-Up
Okay, your bike may not need its own costume (although a few RadWagon riders clearly disagree), but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress up your bike to help it be seen and keep things safe, like with reflective safety stickers or a premium headlight.
And to keep an eye on what may be creeping up behind you, a Rad Mirror* can easily be installed to your handlebars!
*Please note: The Rad Mirror will not show vampires.
You must be 16 or older to operate a Rad Power Bikes ebike. Children under the age of 16 may lack the necessary judgment and skill to safely operate the ebike. A parent or legal guardian should always decide whether a child should operate or ride on an electric bike or any other vehicle.
Some localities may require ebike riders to be older than 16, so know and obey local regulations regarding rider age and other qualification.
Riding is better when we do it together! To kick-off the holidays, you can save $300 when you purchase two bikes.
