South Lakes Action on Climate Change (SLACC) have been pulling together an exciting new project and have the go ahead to trial E-cargo bike activity, over a 4 week period in September with a bike kindly on loan from Raleigh.

The aim will be to engage a few businesses to trial some collections and deliveries by bike, and to organise some public-facing activities for trial-outs and awareness-raising.

The project is dependent on volunteers and SLACC are looking for 2 or 3 people to be part of the organising team (anything from 1 hour per week up to whatever they like until the end of September) alongside volunteer riders.

If you’d like to volunteer to support the project please contact

The project also aims to see several businesses or organisations utilising the bikes for a few days or a week to use as they see fit for business purposes. If you are a local business owner or work with a local business and are interested in loaning a cargo bike please contact

The trial aims to research interest and potential for a permanent e-cargo bike scheme across Kendal town.
