How it works
We have several 2-wheeled bikes with front loading storage of different capacities. We can discuss the best bike that fits your needs.
We also some more slightly more compact bikes that can carry loads front and rear and which also come with large capacity panniers for extra shopping capacity. These are ideal for riders of all heights and for those with limited space at home as they take up less room.
We have a few bikes of both types that can be set up with seats and are able to carry kids up to the height of 130cm (for the front loaders). The maximum load capacity for the rear loaders in total is 172kg so as long as the kids are within this weight and can fit on the seats comfortably and securely age and height is less of an issue.
We have trailers available to add extra capacity to all the eCargo bikes on hire. Trailers are also available to hire separately.
Bikes are only available for pick up and drop off
Fridays (10-3), Saturdays (10-12) and Mondays (9-12).
