Cargo bikes

Support purchasing a cargo bike

We have partnered with Peddle My Wheels to enable businesses and residents in the borough to hire a bicycle, e-bike, cargo bike, e-cargo bike or trailer with the option to buy the bike at the end. Find out more about the Try Before You Bike scheme.

Hire a community cargo bike

From summer 2022 there will be a community cargo bike on Moyser Road and St John's Hill for residents and businesses to use.

Watch a video showing how the scheme works.

Visit the Our Bike website to register to hire one of the community cargo bikes in the borough or to find out more about the scheme.

If you would like to see a community cargo bike in another part of the borough, email transportation@wandsworth.gov.uk so we can monitor demand.
