Brands invited to compete for exclusive TfL cargo bike logo

Manufacturers of cargo bikes for businesses and consumers are being invited to take part in Transport for London’s (TfL) first ever Best Cargo Bike competition.

The winner will receive the exclusive use of a specially designed TfL logo for 12 months for marketing and promotion, as well as promotion on TfL’s own website and social media channels.

The competition closes on 5 July and all entries must be available for testing on Wednesday 10 July at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. All cycles should be supplied built and ready for use.

All of the bikes will be assessed and tested by a panel of expert judges, including Will Norman, London’s Walking and Cycling Commissioner, current business users and representatives of the parenting sector.

The competition is being pitched as part of TfL’s summer of cycling themed events, designed to encourage people to take up cycling and to spread awareness of cycle routes across London, which will be branded Cycleways if they meet TfL’s new Cycling Quality Criteria.

London’s growing cycling network will be gradually rebranded as Cycleways over the coming months following feedback from Londoners that the current brands can be misleading – especially for those new to cycling. Alongside the rebrand, a number of high quality Cycleways will also be opening across London, TfL said.

For more information or to enter the competition, kindly contact edwardmorris@tfl.gov.uk

For those with interest in the corporate potentials of cargo bikes, the Department for Transport published a supplier list eligible for its £2m e-cargo bike funding earlier this year.
