Paulin, the cargo bike of our association, has a new home since February!
Paulin now lives in the shop Kevkus in the Berliner Allee 200-204 – just around the corner. Thus, it is now also for neighbors, bike enthusiasts and at all who want to abandon the car, regularly available for free.
The rental is organized through the rental system fLotte, an initiative of the ADFC Berlin, which since March 2018 enables the free hire of almost 40 cargo bikes in various districts. A godfather who takes care of the bike and the owner of Kevkus make this possible through their volunteer commitment to the project.
With Paulin, larger purchases and transports can now be done easily in Weißensee without a car. Because the three-wheeled Bakfiets Troy has an electric drive and a box that can be loaded with about 100kg and offers space for four toddlers. In bad weather, a rain cover can be pulled over. Small conversions by volunteers of our association also make Paulin even more practical.
The cargo-bike rental is the result of a workshop day of the Prima Klima project in Weissensee, in which the active members of our association took part and together made plans for the traffic turnaround in our district.
The loan is possible every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday between 11:00 and 16:00. A reservation must first be made via the website flotte-berlin.de.
On the remaining days of the week, the bike will continue to be available for our associations activities as well as for the users of our seminar and guesthouse tagungswerk, so that they too can do their shopping in an environmentally friendly and secure manner.
