Little People Carrier

With rising fuel costs, running a second car is getting more expensive.  With its large box, child seats and optional electric assist motor, the Little People Carrier trike is ideal for ferrying the kids to school, commuting to work and weekend activities.  The school run turns into a shared fun experience rather than a struggle to find a car parking space near to the school drop off point.

Product Description

The Little People Carrier is a great concept not only for ferrying children and shopping around, but it demonstrates to your children a real, simple and practical way of having fun, saving money and being ‘green’.  With its streamlined raincover your children are kept dry in all weather and the lap belts or harness’ keep them safe when riding. The raincover and poles disassemble quickly to be stored in the convenient space under the bench seat.

Two shapes of rain tent are offered. The traditional ‘Wild West waggon’ style is supported by two fixed curved poles and has an arched roof and flat front.

The more refined streamlined rain tent is supported by four tent poles which keep the rain tent material in tension to prevent the material from flapping when riding. The rain tent is fully collapsible and can be stored inside the cargo box when not required. This style of rain tent also provides superior visibility for the rider of the road in front of the trike plus its shape makes it easier to pedal into a headwind.

Even with a 6 monthly service by your local bike shop, the running costs of a Little People Carrier is a tiny fraction of running a car and its a lot more fun!

Electric assist is available. The 250w electric hub motor is ideal for normal terrain with smaller children on board. The motor is controlled by a thumb lever, the more you push the lever, the faster you go. The motor can also be put into automatic mode which supplies power whenever you pedal.  This motor is ideal for starting off at road junctions or climbing moderate hills to give you that extra boost. The removable battery slides into a pannier rack above the rear wheel. The battery charges in 4-6 hours and will typically give 1000 charge cycles.

There is a large range of options that can be selected to be fitted to your Little People Carrier, the ones below are the most popular but if there is something that you want on your trike that is not listed then please just contact me.  As each trike is built to order it is very easy to customise the size, shape and layout of the trike, cargo box and rain tent. I can replace the plain square cargo box with a custom-made car body, boat or a rocket shape. If you have the idea I can usually make it happen.
