Electric pedal power comes to the community

In partnership with Islington Council and local small businesses, OurBike is bringing affordable and sustainable transportation to Exmouth Market and Caledonian Road.

The new electric cargo bikes offer a great way to transport small loads safely and quickly, and are better for the environment too.

The bikes can be hired by the hour and will be available for use by any local business or resident who registers with OurBike.  

The MK5 three-wheeled electric bike is perfect for carrying all sorts of cargo for businesses or residents, from trade equipment and deliveries to bulky shopping or passengers.

The bike is easy to park, can travel through low traffic neighbourhoods and will hold up to 100kg in the cargo box – and the electric motor will get you up the steepest hills.

The fitted bench can carry two children or one adult, leaving lots of space for other things, and the rain cover will keep your cargo dry.

In Exmouth Market, the bike will be hosted by Briki, (67 Exmouth Market, EC1R 4QL) where cyclists can enjoy a coffee before setting off.  

On Caledonian Road, E-scooter clinic and cafe, (346 Caledonian Road, N1 1DU) will host another new bike, for Cally residents and businesses to use.
