For June’s Clean Air Day, Cross River Partnership visited Brixton with our partners at Pedal Me. We met with prospective businesses and gave a live demonstration of the cargo bikes used to fulfil deliveries.
The businesses we spoke to were amazed at the bike’s capacity (300kg, including the trailer) and impressed by the fast, professional service offered by Pedal Me.
We will encourage Brixton businesses to use this fantastic, fully-funded scheme for the rest of the summer, taking advantage of free, fast, reliable, low-emission deliveries. To get involved or to find out more, contact CRP Project Officer Jack Alexander.
By booking through the Pedal Me app, businesses receive a time slot (so they know when to expect their delivery) and can chat live with the Pedal Me team for any updates.
Cargo bikes are a fantastic way of tackling emissions. These deliveries reduce local traffic, idling, and road miles from failed delivery attempts. CRP will report on the impact of this trial after the CAV4 project.
