The council already has a partnership with Peddle My Wheels to enable businesses and residents in the borough to hire a bicycle, e-bike, cargo bike, e-cargo bike or trailer.
Now an additional £40,000 is being made available by the Government, which will be distributed by the Energy Saving Trust on a first-come, first-served basis. Businesses and organisations can receive up to 40 per cent the total cost of a new eCargo bike, up to the value of £2,500 for two-wheel models and £4,500 for three-wheel models. Find out more.
Various businesses and organisations in Wandsworth have already received cargo bikes via Peddle My Wheel’s scheme and previous rounds of the Energy Saving Trust scheme. The council is also developing a shared e-Cargo Bike scheme, ideal for businesses and organisations who would like a cargo bike but are short of storage space.
See the council’s website for case studies of how cargo bikes are already being used in the borough.
