A new bike arrives..

So as you will all know we're launching some new things at the moment. Recycling is being pushed to businesses in February and then we'll launch in March for official weekly collection.

What that does mean, is that it looks like the trikes that carry big cargo loads will be used for recycling more than anything else. So we needed to find a solution, a dedicated cargo bike, quick, light and British. We've been shopping around for ages and been speaking to lots of other courier and cargo companies. The guys at outspoken delivery pointed us to a chap called Mike Burrows. He made a bike once ridden by Chris Boardman in the Olympics.

So after much chatting, thinking, deliberating, tea drinking, chatting and tea drinking, we parted with some hard earned profit and purchased an 8 Freight! :

Before it hits the street for the company we'll have to do a few bits, have a box made and some vinyls, I guess all you guys need to know is that it's a little ripper!
