...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'s reader-funded journalism won't survive. With 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

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.
