Cycle Crieff Cargo

We have been shortlisted for funding by the PKC Green Living Fund to research the feasibility of setting up and establishing a community Cycle Crieff Cargo Bike Delivery Service.

The service will be a 'do anything' local delivery service using cargo bikes, which will help to reduce vehicle use. The service will be run by locals to help both visitors and local residents make use of their community services and facilities. The service will be run on a 'Pay What You can Afford' basis.

Repair

As a qualified aeronautical engineer, with over 30 years cycle maintenance experience, it was a natural step to set up a repair and support element for Cycle Crieff. We have Velotech technicians who are happy to support visiting and local cyclists to keep their bikes working.
