Build It

Cargo bikes

A couple of weeks back a question was asked – who wants to build a cargo bike or trailer. The answer was…. quite a few people.

The plan therefore is to run some build sessions on Sunday afternoons over August, starting August 10th and ending when we have built or when we want to stop. The initial aim is to build one cargo bike and one trailer using simple(ish) no weld design, and as much as possible salvaged local materials.

At the end, we plan to have our working models and some idea on what works, and what materials can be sourced – and this is where it can get even more interesting: we can carry on and make some more, trying out other designs and techniques, or open up self build to whoever wants to build. Although barely out of ‘ideas’ stage, we have already been approached by two creative businesses wanting to commission bespoke cargo bikes for their trade.

For more info and how you can help see the all new Build Day Info pages!!!

look forward to seeing you on the 10th
