Yeah the cargo bikes can be a bit expensive, obviously here you can easily buy them second hand so that helps. (Not that i need an electric cargo bike anyway)

The lower center of gravity will help a bit, but that, a foam helmet and those bars probably wont help much if you get hit by a car. I assume Portland has better cycling infrastructure than most of the US though.

And Slew, i agree any child should just cycle themselves from age 5 or 6, but only if there's decent bicycle infrastructure as that's the only way to stop drivers from murdering people. (edited)
