Why rent cargo and adapted cycles?
At Transition we believe anyone and everyone should have the opportunity to cycle. That is why we have a fleet of cargo and adapted cycles available to hire for both individuals and businesses:
Cargo cycles are the greener, cleaner, faster way to transport people and things around – they are 60% faster than vans in city centres. We have cargo bikes, child carrier tricycles, and 200kg load-bearing trailers.
Adapted cycles are modified trikes to help people with a range of physical abilities to get active. We have a recumbant trike and a side-by-side tandem.
All of the cycles are pedal powered but have electric assist to support your ride. Our goal is to replace journeys made by vehicles with internal combustion engines (ICE) with our zero-emission cycles.
These cargo cycles are a new part of our already successful Bike Pool scheme. For more, see pictures and rental guide below.
