Lewisham Family Cycling Library can lend you an electrically-assisted cargo-trike to transport your kids around.ย  You can also hire other children’s rear-mounted seats or trailers, so that you can leave your car at home.

Air quality is a big concern in Lewisham, and children are more at risk inside cars, where toxic fumes can accumulate. On a bike they learn more about their surroundings, enjoy the ride, and you know you’re doing your best for the environment and your children’s health.

Come to one of our Library events on a park or public space in Lewisham to try out our e-cargo trike with your family. Or invite us to your school – we do post-pick-up sessions for families so that they can try out the e-trike and other equipment, with a trainer under safe conditions.

Once you’ve had a 20 minute training session, you’re eligible to borrow the e-trike, or any other item, for up to two weeks. There’s a deposit and ID check, and then it’s yours to try out.

Our next public event is on the 13th June from 10am – 12pm in Ladywell Fields and you can book on eventbrite
