Strathaven took delivery of its first community electric cargo bike this week, as part of the latest project by Climate Action Strathaven to help reduce emissions.
Our e-cargo bike will be based in the Common Green and can be used by local independent retailers and locals to get goods delivered. The community project, the first in Scotland of this type, will run for the rest of the year to November 2021
Theo from Roasted Cafe, one of the first businesses to sign up to the scheme said, “We’re excited to be involved with the e-cargo bike project, and we hope it will help us deliver more of our products around the town. We’re looking forward to making it easier for locals to enjoy our coffees, cakes and savouries.”
CAS member Tom Barbour who has been supporting CAS since the beginning said, “We’re definitely keen to promote and support local businesses first and foremost, but if there’s a delivery that the e-bike can make that would eliminate a car or van journey, and would make someone’s day a little easier, then give CAS a call.”
