Yary reveals the benefits of driving a cargo bike instead of a van
Previously, Yary drove a van for another transport company, but now he drives a cargo bike instead - read more about the benefits of the switch, and why he did it.
Velove's mission is Beat Vans - what do you think?
- There will be fresher air and less noise in the cities - everything is improving. I like that Velove is more personal and it's fun to get out and ride alongside work at mine and my brother's company called Coolkeys. A few weeks ago he also started at Velove!
What is the difference between driving a van and a cargo bike?
- When I was driving a van I was always late for the first stop because of all the traffic in the afternoon - the traffic was more stressful and it was stressful to find parking and then run the last distance to the customers.
Driving a van seems more stressful, but at least it kept you warm?
- Now in the winter, of course, it will be colder to sit on the bike than in the heat of the van. But it's a bigger vehicle and it becomes more dangerous for everyone when the drivers hit the gas to make it on time - cycling doesn't feel dangerous or stressful, and there's a lot of exercise.
