UK supermarket chain now using ebikes for deliveries

c/o the BBC: UK Supermarket chain Waitrose has begun a small pilot program with four stores for groceries purchased online to be delivered by electric-assist cargo bikes.  The bikes can carry up to 6 trays of groceries and keep food frozen for 2 hours. While the bikes will only be doing a small portion of deliveries the store makes, it’s a step in the right direction and the store will not need to purchase any new delivery vehicles for the time being – with any luck this will be the way they’ll continue to grow their delivery fleet!

    I think electric bikes are great! I have never heard of the Pietzo berofe so I looked it up and if you are going to spend that much, I suggest you get something with at least 500w motor. Have you looked at the Pedego Electric Bikes?
