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.

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.
