Cargo bike delivery trial in Ludlow
Islabikes and Ludlow 21 Sustainable Transport Group have launched a cargo bike delivery trial to lower Ludlow’s carbon footprint. The initial 8-month trial period offers free delivery rounds to local businesses wanting to deliver small goods around town.
If the trial is successful it is hoped the service will expand and become permanent, whilst providing a template for entrepreneurs in other small towns who are interested in delivering goods by bike.
If you are a Ludlow-based business and would like to find out if we could carry out delivery rounds to your customers, please read the information below before completing the contact form below, or give us a call on +44 (0) 1584 708 383.
What is a cargo bike?
A cargo bike is essentially the modern equivalent of the traditional ”butcher's bike”. There are various styles; the one Islabikes will be using has two wheels, a large box at the front (approximately 120 cm x 70 cm) and the rider is assisted by an electric motor.
What times and days are we available to carry out delivery rounds?
We undertake delivery rounds from Monday to Friday, between 9.00am and 3.30pm.
What kind of goods can you deliver?
We are able to deliver small to medium sized goods/boxes, but not very large, potentially hazardous or excessively heavy items. The cargo bike hold is approximately 120x70cm. For more info please call or complete the contact form and we’ll be in touch.
Please don’t ask us to carry anything explosive!
We deliver within the boundaries of Ludlow town, please see the map for delivery area.
How much does it cost?
The service is free of charge to local businesses for the duration of the 8 month trial.
Why are you doing this? Islabikes manufactures bikes, it’s not a delivery company!
To help lower Ludlow’s carbon footprint, support our local community and reduce the number of vehicles on the roads around town.
