Counting on …day 132

26th March 2022

‘Electric cargo bikes deliver about 60% faster than vans in city centres, according to a study. It found that bikes had a higher average speed and dropped off 10 parcels an hour, compared with six for vans. The bikes also cut carbon emissions by 90% compared with diesel vans, and by a third compared with electric vans, the report said. Air pollution, which is still at illegal levels in many urban areas, was also significantly reduced.’ https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/aug/05/cargo-bikes-deliver-faster-and-cleaner-than-vans-study-finds

You can hire a cargo delivery service through companies such as Pedal Me to collect and deliver all manner of goods – and as a taxi service for people . Pedal Me offers such a service within a 9 mile radius of central London and can carry one/ two passengers and/or luggage and even dogs.
