The impact of the pandemic and climate crisis has provided sharp opportunities for key changes in travel behaviour. E-cargo bikes can chauffeur children, pets and passengers, offer a chance to exercise, reduce stress and achieve greater mobility, and all while reducing a family’s environmental impact.

Parenthood in itself brings major lifestyle changes which, in the past, often led to increased car dependence. Getting more parents and caretakers using e-cargo bikes aligns with active travel, clim and car restraint policies, and also enables quality family time.

This webinar will explore how local authorities and communities are:

  • Making it easier for families to try e-cargo bikes
  • Developing networks of e-cargo bike ‘lending libraries’ across the UK 
  • E-cargo bike suitability, flexibility, versatility and safety
  • Training, skills and guidance
  • Creating supportive bike infrastructure, culture and support networks
