…and we are joining the e-bike revolution.
We only have a five-mile delivery journey from the croft bake house to Fort William core area, which we run once or twice a week. And there’s a scenic combination of canal tow path and bike track practically the whole way. But to date no e-cargo bikes have really looked capable of shifting the sheer weight and bulk of sourdough our micro bakery outputs in highland rain and shine.
But I am excited to say we have just had a business loan approved by the energy saving trust for an e-cargo bike trailer – made by Carla Cargo in Germany and imported and customised for doughies by Manchester Bike Hire. This electric cargo trailer hitches to a regular bike and is designed to safely transport a decent quantity of re-usable euro crates (which we already deliver our sourdough in).
So stay tuned and keep an eye out for us 🙂
