Porterlight Bicycles X Deliveroo - Custom London Cargo Bike

Great to see London cargo bike manufacturer Porterlight Bicycles has been working with takeaway food company Deliveroo  to produce a high capacity cargo bike suited to the UK's roads... and weather!

With cargo cycling in London taking off in a big way, it's wonderful to see local companies collaborating to build solutions to the city's traffic and congestion problems. The ability for Deliveroo to get hot takeaway orders to their customers quickly is paramount, so it's not surprising that this disruptive start-up is keen to seek out the tools that make it all possible.

The Deliveroo cargo bike features an 8 speed Shimano Alfine, Avid BB5 disc brakes, a giant cargo deck, and a custom rear rack for that trademark Deliveroo rear pannier box.

All in all, it's a great looking cargo bike solution for the UK and even better it's coming from a London based cargo bike builder, Porterlight. More details about the bike here and the normal Bringley cargo bike model here.

  1. Nice. Not the first cargobike run by Deliveroo; they already have several Christiania Bikes. https://www.flickr.com/photos/131669368@N03/21471163095/sizes/l
