Letters, Lego and Lettuce – need to move it? Manchester’s cargo bikes are here!

Manchester’s Triangulum e-cargo bikes have been hard at work helping businesses get moving. Working with cargo bike specialists Manchester Bike Hire, Manchester City Council has bought four electric assist cargo bikes to be used by businesses in and around the city. Here’s some of the clever things they have been up to! The bikes are fully GPS tracked to evaluate journeys, distance and carbon savings.

See the Manchester mobility work in action in this video:

LETTERS
Manchester Metropolitan University post room is now whizzing letters across their campus. The bike is much easier – no need to find parking and walk – just ride up to the door and drop off the letters. What could be easier?

Take a letter!

LEGO
Local entrepreneur Helen Beesely runs Lego parties for kids and not only that, she goes by bike! Helen was crowdfunding to replace her existing bike / trailer set up. Triangulum was able to come to her aid and now she loans a bike from the scheme. And because her parties are at the weekend, it works perfectly with the other users.

Lego to go!

LETTUCE
Vida Health Kitchen offer a scrummy menu of good foods for you. They used a bike for the Ironman 2017 triathlon and dressed it up to promote their business by offering freebies to spectators. After the trial they have taken a longer term hire from Manchester Bike Hire. A great result for healthy eating and for Triangulum!

Food to go!
