Cargo bike hire
The Edinburgh Festival of Cycling Ltd has an Urban Arrow cargo bike which is available for hire (when not in use on company business i.e. during the Festival of Cycling in June). As a social enterprise, one of our aims is to promote cycling as a form of sustainable transport. So we are making our Urban Arrow cargo bike available for hire for journeys in and around Edinburgh. When hiring the Urban Arrow you can either collect and return at an arrange time outside of The Bicycle Works, 29-30 Argyle Place, EH9 1JJ, (please note that this is just a meeting place, the Bicycle Works is an entirely separate business and is not involved with the hire of this bike) or we can arrange delivery or collection to/from other locations inwith Edinburgh for a modest extra charge.
The cargo bike hire comes with insurance cover from the Environmental Transport Association which includes: Theft, accidental damage and vandalism cover (subject to a £100 excess), £5 million Personal Liability cover, and bicycle breakdown cover. So you can hire our cargo bike with confidence.
