We're closed next week (28 Jan - 5 Feb 2017) so if you hire one of our Bakfiets cargobikes from Thursday 26 Jan or Friday 27 Jan you can get some extra nights free.
You will need to return the cargobike on Monday 6 Feb (Trike) or Weds 8 Feb (others, such as Short, above).
So for our 8-night fee you could get up to 6 nights free! (Thurs 26 Jan - Weds 8 Feb).
On Thursday 26 Jan we have appointment slots for pick-up between 9am and 4pm, except not 10-11am.
Our first Family Bike Ride with Family Cycling Hackney and Hackney Cycling Campaign on 27 November 2016 was a great success, with 39 folk - from grannies to tiny wrapped up tots - turning up in Christmas lights finery.
We did a lap of London Fields and pottled up Hackney Grove to the Town Hall, where the Christmas lights were being switched on.
The first ride with our Cycling Grants London funding will be an array of funky lights and Santa hats!
Join us and Family Cycling Hackney plus some ride marshalls to help us out on Sunday 27th November at 4pm outside London Fields Lido.
We are also offering FREE hire of a cargobike for a week to go with the ride! (small deposit required). Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
This Sunday 15th May we'll be bringing our cool cargobikes to the Stoke Newington Common Users Group (SNUG) event - bike fix and plant sale. We'll be there between 2-4pm (event starts at 1pm) giving rides to little kids and letting sensible grown-ups have a go! So if you fancy trying out a couple of our hire bikes, come along and find us (and get your own bike fixed, and buy a plant).
Carry Me Bikes is running two FREE evening events where businesses and other organisations can find out more about how cargo bikes can be useful to their operations. It’s aimed at businesses and other organisations in Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Redbridge and Havering and those who are thinking of setting up their own business are very welcome too. Funded by charity Sustrans and the EU Cyclelogistics project and run by Carry Me Bikes and Outspoken Delivery, the events will be fun & interesting - and you’ll also get to try out these fab bikes yourself.
Carry Me Bikes has been busy during Bike Week 2013 http://www.bikeweek.org.uk/ . We took part in the Hackney Cycling Showcase organised by the London Cycling Campaign in Hackney last Saturday in London Fields, and then the Bikers Breakfast in the same place on Wednesday, very early in the morning!
This Christmas, east London-based Carry Me Bikes is offering a ‘Secret Cycling Santa service’ to deliver presents to children in Tower Hamlets and Hackney.
The price for a visit from Santa and his pedalling pixies will go towards raising funds for this new social enterprise to run other socially beneficial projects in the borough.
