Balbriggan Tidy Towns takes it up a gear with electric cargo bicycle as part of Fingal support for community groups

Balbriggan Tidy Towns has received an electric cargo bicycle as part of Fingal Council Council’s efforts to expand the use of cargo bikes and to support community groups.

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

A spokesperson for Fingal County Council said: “This morning Balbriggan Tidy Towns took delivery of their e-cargo bike from Bleeper — they’ll use it for transporting their tools, plants and garden waste around Balbriggan and we’re looking forward to seeing the bike get lots of use as they beautify Balbriggan.”

Bleeper said: “This week we delivered a new electric cargo bike to Balbriggan Tidy Towns. The cargo bike is funded by Fingal County Council and is one of a number of electric cargo bikes which the council is supplying to local community groups across the county.”

“The bike we delivered to Balbriggan Tidy Towns is a Bimas Bikes Ecargo 3.3 Premium, with a powerful Bafang E-Bike Drive Systems M400 motor and a 630Wh Samsung Electronics battery for great range – a perfect workhorse for all the jobs that Tidy Towns volunteers do,” the company said.

The rental company added: “Bleeper also supplied and installed the branding for the cargo bike, something which increases the visual impact of the bike and builds awareness about Tidy Towns, and about Fingal County Council’s support for local initiatives.”
