“Just to say thank you for loaning us the cargo bike - we are all really enjoying using it and when ice/snow/wind permits we are using it for all our local journeys and leaving the car at home!”
Blair Drummond Safari Park go wild about their cargo bike...
Cargo bikes loaned by Going Carbon Neutral Stirling proved a great hit this year at Blair Drummond Safari Park.
The park staff scored the bikes 7/10 for practicality and fun. As you can see from the pictures, the practical uses of the cargo bikes could always be combined with an element of fun. We should point out, however, that Keep Scotland Beautiful, which runs GCNS, does not recommend using these bikes for any stunt activities!
Scott Meiklejohn, the catering manager who organised the loan of the bikes, said: “These bikes are excellent for carrying smaller goods that would normally have required a van.”
He went on to explain that everyone “thoroughly enjoyed their experience” of the cargo bikes and that they would be happy to use the bikes again. The owner of Blair Drummond Safari Park is also now considering buying cargo bikes for their day-to-day operations.
Thanks SO much for the bike; we've had the best time ever as I'm sure you'll be able to tell by the mileage! Should any of the supermobiles be going spare over the Winter months please do give us a call as we'll be happy to peddle some more!
Sarah and Skye trial Daisy
Skye on Austin Wheelie during their triaining session. Skye and Sarah used Daisy the bike for their trial.
We used Daisy to do some maintenance at the community centre garden, to transport plants, soil, planters and took her to Save Gillies Hill as well as along to the big bike fun day.
I took the liberty of adding the Save Gillies Hill stickers (can be peeled off) on to Daisy and using the keyring for the keys, this made her very happy!!!
We would love to have another cargo bike but my daughter has made it very clear she only wants Daisy?!
