E-cargo bike does the heavy lifting at community litter pick
Solihull Council’s electric cargo bike recently showed its versatility by doing the heavy lifting in a community litter pick event in North Solihull.
With a carrying capacity of 900 litres or 100kg of weight, the e-cargo bike proved to be a useful and eco-friendly addition for enthusiastic litter pickers in Chelmsley Wood.
The e-cargo bike, branded in ‘Your Future Solihull’ colours, is available free of charge to businesses and community groups on a trial basis. The scheme is part of Solihull Council’s commitment to active travel, clean air, carbon reduction and congestion relief.
