Community owned cargo bikes in Hereford

So to add a little to what we are doing with our company and to what we see happening in places in Europe we want to see if it is possible to make cargo bikes (large capacity bicycles) accessible to the general public in Hereford. Maybe in other places to if the scheme works.

It looks like we have some support from a few folk in Hereford so to get the ball rolling we are going to do a couple of local events where we can bring the idea to the general public and get their thoughts.

On of them will be in High Town on Saturday the 13th, we'll have a bike there and some questions to ask people. Then the following Monday we're chairing a talk at the local h:energy festival at the Courtyard Hereford.

Community owned cargo bikes for inner city Hereford?

About the Event or Activity
Join Will Vaughan from Hereford Pedicabs and Cargo as he joins New Leaf to discuss his proposal for community-owned cargo bikes (bicycles with large carrying capacity) for the city. The idea is already popular on the continent, and could be part of the solution for Herefordshire's future transport needs. Come and join the discussions and help shape this exciting new project proposal for locally owned, community operated cargo bikes. This event is part of an afternoon and evening of Transport related discussions, film and talks. Please check event listing for further event details.
