Recently, Solarbike approached Cargocycles to supply a Yuba Mundo for a very special project. The Big Issue Electric Bicycle Project in Perth was set up to help deliver the Big Issue to Perth's vendors in an environmentally friendly way.
A few months ago we stumbled across this really interesting report about Australian's cycling participation rates across different states from the Cycling Resource Centre. We thought it was awesome with amazing statistics but not that accessible (i.e. visually interesting). So we decided to create an inforgraphic from the information. Feel free to spread the word and share with anyone you think may be interested.
At last, we have responded to popular demand and produced a box cargo bike with a secret weapon - a Solar Bike conversion kit! This can be fitted to both our Longhaul and Shorthaul cargo bikes.
At $1050 plus fitting it is a great value for money option for electric box bike enthusiasts who would like some extra power.
Two new Yuba Mundos off to their new home working for a living as the main tools for new social enterprise business http://www.goodcycles.org/
Good Cycles will operate mobile bike mechanic teams across Melbourne. Each team will consist of an experienced bike mechanic paired with trainees. Together they will cycle the city on cargo bikes (with tools on board) offering tune-up/repair services to workplaces and individuals – at office buildings, universities, events and on major cycling entry points into Melbourne’s CBD.
Keep an eye out for your new mobile bike gurus!
