E-Cargo Bike scheme launched


Cycle Derby’s eCargo bike scheme has launched with half the bikes already in use across the city.

Cycle Derby received £41,824 for eight electric cargo bikes following a successful BID to the eCargo Bike Grant Fund delivered by the Energy Saving Trust, with the vision to create a scheme to loan them for free to local businesses on a try-before-you-buy basis.

The aim is to encourage the exploration of greener and more sustainable methods of transporting goods and services around the city centre.

Under the scheme, businesses are loaned the bikes for up to six months, free of charge.

Businesses interested in trialling them are urged to register their interest with Cycle Derby’s Mark Smith by e-mailing mark.smith@derby.gov.uk.
