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.

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.
