Cargo Bike Makes Fast Flatbread Deliveries for Eat 17

Walthamstow restaurant Eat 17 has launched a new takeaway service so you can order their famous flatbreads on the go, and deliveries will be made fast and emission free on a cargo bike provided by Waltham Forest Council.


Independent eaterie Eat 17, based on Orford Road, Walthamstow, recently launched their delivery service via takeaway website Just Eat, with seven different flatbreads available to order online.


The Council is helping out by providing a cargo bike for deliveries on an initial month-long trial basis, as part of its commitment to promoting walking and cycling, and improving air quality across the borough.


Cllr Clyde Loakes, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment said: “We are always looking for new and innovative ways to promote walking and cycling in the borough, and if we can do this while helping out a local business then it’s a win all-round.


“Cargo bikes are a great alternative to the car and are, of course, emission free. They can also avoid traffic congestion so deliveries should always arrive on time!”


The Council operates a free cargo bike hire scheme, with different bikes available that are perfect for the school run, shopping trips or local deliveries. A refundable deposit of £100 is required on pick up, and first time users will need to have an induction and quick road test. For more information visit www.enjoywalthamforest.co.uk/cargo-bike
