A 1/12th cargo bike, with a large loading platform, elastic bungees to carry lots of things,
comfy swept back handlebars and wheels that really spin.
Check your local wood recycling project and Library of Things for supplies and tools:
In England, 60% of 1-2 miles (1 to 3km) journeys are made by car (1). 16% to of London is covered in parking spaces. Two million people – including more than 400,000 children – are living in areas that exceed legal limits for air pollution. (2)
Moving away from private car use in cities, will of course slash emissions.
But it would also free up space for housing, public green spaces and shared mobility and active travel infrastructure.
After all, cities should be for humans not for transit.
With microcargo, I want to provide an alternative to toy cars, embedding active travel and sustainable transport into play, and share my love of making things with my community (that's you too!).
If you enjoy this ressource, please consider donnating to Cycling UK, who do crucial work enabling people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to be able to cycle safely, easily and enjoyably.
