What are Cargo Bikes and Adapted Trikes?
At Transition we have a fleet of cargo and adapted cycles available to hire for both individuals and businesses. Our goal is to replace journeys made by vehicles with internal combustion engines (ICE) with our zero-emission cycles, as well as support people to get active and get cycling.
Cargo bikes have a cargo hold to transport larger items (including people) or larger quantities of items around. In some cities cargo bike are up to 60% greener, cleaner, and faster way to transport people and things around.
Adapted trikes are modified to help people with a range of physical abilities cycle.
All of the bikes and trikes are pedal powered with electric assist to support your ride. Meet the fleet in the section below.
