Cargo Bike Trial Launched in Willesden Green

Businesses in Willesden Green have committed to swap deliveries by car and van, to eco-friendly cargo bikes as part of Cross River Partnership’s Clean Air
Villages 4 (CAV4) trial.

The launch of this scheme is part of the many initiatives taking place in Brent for Bike Week 2022 (2nd – 6th June), which aims to promote the benefits of cycling for health and wellbeing and protecting the planet.

The free cargo bike scheme is available to businesses, community organisations, non-profits and charities in the Willesden Green area who wish to reduce their carbon footprint and improve local air quality. This service, which is provided by eStreet Services, is available to book via an online booking platform, with a set number of FREE hours available for businesses to use as part of the scheme. The cargo bike delivery service (which involves a bike and rider) aims to highlight the ease of switching to cargo bikes for deliveries, ultimately reducing local air pollution and saving costs for local businesses. You can book free zero-emission deliveries via eStreet Service’or contact CRP Project Manager Fiona Coull for more information.

“Cargo bike trials have been really popular with local businesses. This is our second trial in Brent, as we continue to explore innovative ways to reduce air pollution and cut carbon emissions.

“We are launching these trials in the lead up to Bike Week, and are working with our partners to offer opportunities to make riding a bike accessible and enjoyable for everyone. There are plenty of excellent health benefits to cycling, not to mention helping us on our journey to reach net zero carbon emission by 2030.”
