A trailer on probation encourages shopping by bicycle
An e-bike trial loan has proven to be a good incentive to promote the use and purchase. The same appears to hold true for the loan of bicycle bags & carts.
At least that's the conclusion of a French investigation into methods to increase the bicycle share in shopping. In the French town of Chambery with 125,000 inhabitants, these inhabitants make some 500,000 journeys per day of which 20% is related to shopping. And it happens only 1% by bicycle.
