...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 nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

The concept has been in place other parts of Europe. For example, Cargoroo operates in the Netherlands and Leuven in Belgium.

It’s not known what price point Bleeper will use. Cargoroo use a free subcription system as only charge per use with €1,00 as a start fee and €3,50 per hour / €0,06 per minute after that.

IKEA stores in a number of countries also offer cargo bicycles to customers and some cities like Utrecht in the Netherlands offers cargo bicycle rental to businesses and residents.

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep's journalism open to all. Thank you.
