Deadline courier and An Post latest companies using cargo bicycles in Dublin

Deadline and An Post are two of the latest companies to start using cargo bicycles in Dublin.

They join courier businesses already using cargo bicycles — such as UPS, Wheels Couriers, Cyclone and the Pony Express.

Other businesses using cargo bicycles in Dublin include Offbeat Donut Co, The Pig & Heifer Restaurant, the Bretzel Bakery, and Deliveroo.

The EU-funded Cyclelogistics research found that on average slightly over half of motorised trips in European cities involving goods could be switched to normal or cargo bicycles.

Deadline launched the cargo bike with a range of larger electric vehicles this week.

An Post has been trialing their new cargo bicycles since at least last September, although we’ve heard more reports of their use in recent weeks.

I am editor of IrishCycle.com and have reported on and commented on cycling in Ireland for over a decade. My background is in journalism -- I have a BA in Journalism from DCU and HDip in Print Journalism from BCFE. I wrote about cycling for national newspapers, and then started CyclingInDublin.com for overflow stories. Later the website was re-branded to reflect a more national focus.
