What are Cargo Bikes and Adapted Trikes?
Bike Pool now has a fleet of cargo and adapted cycles available to hire for individuals, charities, and businesses. Our goal is to replace local 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. They come in all shapes and sizes fit for different purposes.
Adapted trikes are modified to help people with a range of physical abilities cycle. Our trikes are recumbant so you can sit upright in a chair to relieve any strain.
All of the bikes and trikes are pedal powered with electric assist to support your ride. Read below for complete information on the service.
Finally, we are delighted to be able to rent out these cycles with thanks to funding from The Crown Estate, the Energy Saving Trust & Transport Scotland. We would also like to give thanks to Sustrans, Edinburgh Festival of Cycling and Fife College for their help in getting the scheme off the ground.
