Setting up cycle based delivery businesses: a Cyclelogistics Workshop
Join us at ecologistiek 2013 at AHOY Rotterdam. read more at bottom of this page
CYCLELOGISTICS involves getting unneeded motor vehicles off the roads by using more cycles for goods transport in urban centres. In Private Logistics, individuals are informed how to use bikes for shopping or moving goods instead of using a car. Shops promote cycling too. Businesses, including tradesmen, window-washers, plumbers, etc are motivated to use bikes following examples from other countries. The Goods Delivery sector is pressed to increase deliveries by cycle.
Towns & cities are learning how to replace unneeded motor vehicles using cycles & cargo cycles to provide Municipal Services like street cleaning, parks maintenance, etc, and have policies limiting motor vehicle access in city zones, favoring cycle deliveries.
CYCLELOGISTICS will inform potential consumers, (private, business, governments) across Europe of test results on cargo bikes, cycle trailers, bags and baskets to encourage purchase.
CYCLELOGISTICS is an EU Intelligent Energy – Europe Programme project with 9 European partners including 3 cities.
Bike to Shop BXL 2013: give your experiences & you could win a bike shopping trolley
UPDATE NOVEMBER 19TH – The deadline to be eligible for the prize draw has now expired – but please do complete the survey and let us know your opinions – this will help us improve the overall shopping-by-bike experience in Brussels.
Did you know that over nine out of every ten food shopping trips could be done by bicycle? Research in Austria found only 6% of people coming out of supermarkets really needed a car to bring their purchases home; most shopping could easily be brought home on a normal bike. The European Cyclists Federation ECF is part of the IEE co-funded CycleLogistics project and wants more people to Shop by Bike more often.
CycleLogistics needs to hear about experiences from people who try to bike to shop more. This information will be used to lobby local shops and write recommendations for improvement in Brussels.
Can you do it? Commit to shop by bike (more) for a month, and tell us the results. Be one of the first hundred to do so and you can win one of ten Andersen bike shopping trailers, worth up to €290.
As soon as you read this you can commit to doing more cycling to shop by signing up via our short survey. Take the survey here (four questions about how often you bike to shop). One month later we will ask for your experiences and feedback on how to improve the Bike to Shop experience in Brussels. The first hundred adults who complete that survey are eligible to win one of the 10 complete cycle shopping trolleys.
Want a free trial of an Andersen Shopping trailer? Just because you register, you can borrow a shopping trailer from our sponsor and bike trailer specialist, La Maison du Vélo (Schaerbeek) for a free trial of up to 7 days. To do this you need to first sign up via our survey. More info there.

CYCLELOGISTICS at ISPOBike 2013 – Focus on EU funding and product development
“The missing millions – could huge numbers of new cycling customers be created by the work of the EU? And how do we get to them?”
Thanks to support from ISPOBike we will be holding a workshop about missing links in cycling product development and the role of EU projects in filing market gaps.
We will be looking at the gap between the rise world of cargo bikes and the limited bag space or baskets on most city bikes. The Bike2shop market is ready to explode but it looks like the average bike shop and public bike sharing schemes just do not have the products!
If the EU is successful in clearing city centres of all carbon emitting vehicles by 2030 we have a new market of 30 million cycle shoppers on bike or pedelec. Will we be ready to respond or will all this market be lost to E-cars and public transport.?
Come and see us at the new Cargoville exhibit at ISPOBike 2013 on 25th and 26th of July and join the workshop from 2-4pm on Friday 26th.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to let us know that you are coming.
