CarryMe Bikes works with others to run projects and find other ways of showing people how to carry freight or families by bike.
The projects are:
These are just some of the people we've worked with:
- We've worked with Sustrans www.sustrans.org.uk/ Outspoken Delivery www.outspokendelivery.co.uk/ and the EU Cyclelogistics project www.cyclelogistics.eu/ to deliver a series of workshops for local businesses. www.carryme.org.uk/news/free-cargo-bike-try-out-sessions-businesses-east-london
- Local Councils on demo projects and events: in Tower Hamlets we looked at whether Meals on Wheels cold be delivered by cargobike; we ran a project with Redbridge Council using a pool of cargobikes for use by Council departments and local organisations; Enfield, Croydon and Waltham Forest amongst others have hired our Events Service.
- When Meaghan McClure was a student at Goldsmiths, University of London she trialled a cargobike sharing system, amongst other cycling activities she set up. We provided the cargobikes and the advice.
- Social enterprise Get More Bikes was just one community company that has used our cargo bikes at several events. They found them so useful that they bought one!
- The Tower Hamlets Wheelers have used our bikes on their famous Glamour Ride - yes you can definitely ride a cargo bikes in heels and a dress!
- The University of East London ran a student intern position during summer 2011 to look into the potential for cargo bikes in Hackney, one of the places in the UK most popular for ‘everyday cycling’: the cycling to work stats for Hackney are now over 14% according to the 2011 Cencus compared with the London average of 2%. Carry Me Bikes helped out student Eva Martinez to talk with local people at schools, nurseries and bike shops about cargo bikes.
