This library is designed to provide people in Glasgow with affordable access to electronic cargo bikes. These electronic bikes are designed to carry large loads with a range of both in-built and attachable trailers and boxes, ideal for deliveries used by local businesses and organisations.
We offer a range of e-cargo bikes in different sizes to suit a variety of goods. This video below is a detailed guide that breaks down the features of each eCargo bike and trailer in our collection and how they might match your needs.
Hiring an e-cargo bike
Once you have contacted us, we will visit you to understand which bike is best for you and your storage options. You’ll then be invited to try the e-cargo bike, where we’ll teach you how to safely ride it. Throughout your hire, we offer ongoing support to ensure the bike matches your needs. This includes:

We currently offer local businesses and organisations loans for up to a month and individuals and families for a week. If you benefit from using the e-cargo bike, you can purchase one through Bike for Good after your loan.
Please note that the loan requires safe storage and must be locked inside behind a door and should not be kept outside. When you make the loan, you will be required to sign an agreement and pay a £250 deposit.
