Cycle freight: why the bike is good for moving more than people
Better infrastructure for transporting people by bike is great. But cycle freight could free up roads and transform cities and towns too
The plastic bike basket I bought online was billed as “large”, but even so I was amazed when it arrived. This was a behemoth – a cavernous, black box into which you could as easily fit a decent-sized dog as a bag of shopping.
Fitted to my new commuter bike, the initial effect was comical. But such worries were soon forgotten given how astonishingly useful it proved.
