eCargo bikes – open for business!

Are you a business or organisation based in Nottingham? Test ride an eCargo bike to see if one is right for your operation.

eCargo bikes offer a sustainable alternative to petrol and diesel vehicles and are specifically designed to transport cargo from A to B with zero emissions. They have a large storage space for cargo at the front of the frame and an electric motor to provide a much-welcomed pedalling boost! Did you know? Ebikes and eCargo bikes are 22% less physically demanding than regular bikes.

Have you considered using an eCargo bike for your business? Read below for the advantages of the benefits of using an eCargo bike!
