HGGT are exploring options to lend out electric cargo bikes (e-cargo bikes) to local organisations to make it easier to move goods, equipment and services around the Garden Town and to see if an e-cargo bike is the right choice in the long term.
You don’t need to be a seasoned cyclist to use one and there will be flexible borrowing periods to suit your organisation.
e-cargo bikes are an affordable, efficient and sustainable way to move things around in the Garden Town
What’s more, they help reduce congestion and assist in moving day-to-day operations away from traditional car and van use and towards active and sustainable travel while giving businesses more time and energy to engage with customers
The e-cargo bikes are currently being used by Harlow Council and Harlow College for transporting goods.
The four bikes have been christened Billy Brakes, Electric Storm, Funky Gibberd and Peddly Weddly in a competition which saw Harlow residents submitting their ideas for names.
We are looking for expressions of interest to see what the appetite is like in the local area for this.
