After many years on the CI committee John Ackers stood down. We are really grateful for everything he has done whilst being on the committee.
We were delighted to welcome two speakers. Laura from the Zero Emissions network, a joint initiative with the boroughs of Islington, Hackney and Tower Hamlets, who told us about the ZEN and its objectives – including their encouragement of using cargo bikes. Did you know that one cargo bike can carry 100 bottles of champagne ?! More information from www.zeroemissionsnetwork.com
Alix of Carryme Bikes presented how they lent cargo bikes, seats and trailers to park rangers, market traders, meals on wheels teams and anyone who wanted to try out some new kit.

Many thanks to them both for coming along and for spreading the word about just how versatile cargo bikes are.
