Monday 23 March Covid19 update

Along with everyone else we are rapidly changing what we do and how we do it.

Some of our staff must now self-isolate for 12 weeks due to underlying health conditions. So they are not involved in any face-to-face work any more and are staying at home.

We are all following the vitally important guidelines regarding socially distancing (2m away from people) and strict hand hygeine, and we expect our customers to adhere to this too.

Some specific things to note:

NEW project in Waltham Forest: Baby Biking!

CarryMe Bikes has gained funding from the London Borough of Waltham Forest to a new project: Baby Biking!

We will be running four events in Leytonstone during June, July, August and September 2019. Each event has two sections - and you can attend either one or both.

The first part is a Masterclass in carrying your kids by bike - a training and information session on the various options so that you can find out more, have a look at the kit, and see how it might fit your bike.

Remember, we're with the Green Commute Initiative!

Would you like to save up to 42% of the cost of a cargobike? Is the one you want going to cost over £1,000? No problem!

If your employer teams up with the Green Commute Initiative salary sacrifice scheme there is no upper limit to the price of the bike, so you can save on the cost of electric assist too!

And they don't have to sign up to a long partnership with lots of HR paperwork: Green Commute Initiative is happy to do a one-off with one employee at a workplace.
