Here’s an interesting cargo bike that can carry your children to school instead of guzzling your 4×4 SUV.
The popularity of the machines is likely to have been boosted by Richmond raising the cost of a parking permit for a large-engined “gas guzzler” to £150. It is also considering charging £75 for an annual permit to drop children off at school by car.
Tony Juniper, director of Friends of the Earth, said he had bought his wife a cargo bike for Christmas: ‘We’ve been trying to cut down on car use and this is perfect for shopping and carrying heavier goods. We even take our youngest to chess matches.’
