More about Chorlton Bike Deliveries...
We deliver shopping for people staying home and take bulky shopping for people who can't manage it by foot or bike to Chorlton and nearby areas.
This will help people choose our large range of fabulous, locally owned, independent shops and businesses. And we all know how important this is for supporting the local economy and protecting jobs!
We also offer business-to-business deliveries too where these can be done by e-cargo bikes.
Our riders (currently 20 people) work in a voluntary capacity for Chorlton Bike Deliveries, though as we grow and develop, we will start to pay commercial arm riders for their time at living wage. We are in the process of setting up as a multi-stakeholder co-operative and are members of Co-op Cycle, the Europe-wide federation of cycle courier co-operatives.
As well as helping the local economy, bike deliveries protect the environment. Fewer cars on the road means lower carbon emissions, a reduction in people with breathing problems from pollution, less traffic clogging up roads for journeys needing to be done by car/van and more freedom for children to play out and walk or cycle to school safely. These are truly benefits for all!
