Manchester has a new cycle delivery company aiming to change the way goods are delivered in the city..
Manchester Cycle Deliveries is based just a few minutes' ride from Piccadilly Station, a location chosen to enable "last mile" delivery in the city centre by bicycle using modern cargo bikes, carrying loads up to 180kgs.
The new enterprise has been set up by Pavol Gajdos who founded Manchester Bike Hire (pic above) and Richard Armitage, Founding Director at European Cycle Logistics Federation (Pic bottom right).
The prospect of seeing more big cargo bikes out on the streets of Manchester is pretty exciting.
There will be more about this as the company gets into gear...
