A car free business

Our business still has an environmental impact when we sell a new bike. We don’t own a car though which is easy in central Edinburgh I think. Basically I use a Carry Freedom trailer as it makes economic ‘logistical’ sense.

If I do have to move larger stuff then I now use either a
Circe Helios tandem with a large Cargo rack fitted or an Urban Arrow - equipped with Bosch assist.

Over half my customers arrive by car. Others are on foot or bike. So my environmental impact is complex and the advent of mobile technology has maybe increased travel for some people.

The business is easy to reach on foot, bike or bus (10 or 27). We are close to NCN 75 that runs beside canal.
