Helping you move more

Moving more with bikes

With a boom in cycling and grants available from Travelwest for businesses to buy an electric cargo bike, we're due to see more of these on the roads. Grant details can also be found on the Energy Saving Trust Website:

Bristol's clean air zone and closure of the old city to cars are certain to accellarate the move using these pollution reducing transport solutions. Some can move up to 1/4 of a tonne of goods or lighter versions are ideal for a big shoping trip, or simply move a child or two.

Bike Bristol's new e-cargo bike!

A big thank you to Travelwest for a grant to buy this as part of thier initiative to reduce van usage by businesses. See more about their grants here:

Cargo bike news:

“This report also finds evidence that e-cargo bikes have the potential to revolutionise first and last mile travel and logistics, replacing up to a quarter of commercial deliveries in cities, 50% of commercial service and maintenance trips, and 77% of private trips (e.g. shopping, child transport),”

Small load cargo bikes

Urban Arrow - Shorty - around £4000

Nimble, versatile and yet incredibly powerful the Shorty is an excellent option for transporting cargo. With it being roughly the same length as a regular city bike, the Shorty’s load capacity surprises many.

Choose from either an Enviolo hub or a Shimano groupset or The Rohloff Speedhub 500/14 as gearing options. A box divider can separate compartments in the box, and a lockable hood effectively waterproofs the box.

With a maximum gross vehicle weight of 190kg, can take up to 150 litres of volume and 85kg max cargo weight, the Shorty is the ideal short utility vehicle. It is perfect for the urban multitasker and can be the solution for your valuable deliveries, much needed accessories or working equipment.

Don't forget Trailers!

Trailers are a practical way to carry a lot of gear without the need for a bulky (and often expensive!) cargo bike.
