In previous posts we already mentioned the cargo bikes as the best solution as urban parcel carriers.
Along this line, the City Change Cargo Bike project has been working to accelerate the use of urban Cargo Bikes in the main EU countries.
This project, largely funded by the European Union, increases its potential for both freight and family transport. It lasts three years and got off the ground in 2018.
This type of bicycle is believed to have a growth potential of 25% in case of its use as a cargo bike, 50% for commercial and repair services, and up to 75% on shopping trips, children and leisure transport.
The Spanish participant in the project is the Center for Environmental Studies (CEA), which acts on behalf of the Vitoria-Gasteiz City Council, one of the cities most involved in the need to create increasingly liveable and thus sustainable urban places.
Both show us the benefits of getting one in a very illustrative way, and these would be some of the reasons to buy a cargo bike:
Regarding the informative guide on the use of cargo bikes as family transport, we could highlight the following:
Just a little reminder, there are three types of cargo bikes for family use: Longjohns, Tricycles or Extra long, and we will choose one based on our needs.
And you, what do you think of Cargo Bikes as a transport solution for the whole family?
