Peloton Liverpool

The social enterprise aims to deliver a better cycling experience to all through skills development programmes.

Peloton Liverpool is a social enterprise that aims to deliver a better cycling experience to all through skills development programmes. Before applying for the eCargo Bike Grant Fund, Peloton already used ecargo bikes for their own deliveries and cargo. Their goal was to offer B2B deliveries and lease out ecargo bikes to other social enterprises and individuals through a project called Agile.

Supporting Liverpool with sustainable transport

As well as using ecargo bikes for their own deliveries, Peloton strives to help other organisations and individuals access them and reduce their own carbon footprint. The idea for Agile sprung from another project that involved training young men in contact with the criminal justice system, to fix bikes, and attend community events on ecargo bikes to deliver this service. This developed into an aspiration for having a fleet of ecargo bikes.

Peloton and the eCargo Bike Grant Fund

Daniel Robinson, operations director at Peloton Liverpool, said: “Agile is still in its infancy, but the arrival of two ecargo bikes supported by the eCargo Bike Grant Fund has enabled us to extend our offer geographically.” Peloton is now planning to station several ecargo bikes across Liverpool for ease of use and greater coverage. Other than the eCargo Bike Grant Fund, no other funding was accessed.

Peloton is now working with Liverpool’s John Moores University to produce a report on the emissions reduced as a result of their ecargo bikes, but what feedback has been received thus far from organisations accessing Agile has been overwhelmingly positive.

"Our ecargo bikes inspire and motivate us to look at the potential 'bikefaction' of all things, for efficiency, environment and our city. The ecargo bike’s agility, aesthetic and statement pushes our organisation forward and creates a distinctive brand for us across Liverpool." Daniel Robinson Peloton Liverpool, operations director
