How many grocery bags are you able to transport on your bike?
2 bags is the standard for now as they weigh 20 pounds, If you are able and would like to carry more bags and deliver to more households please put that number below!
Do you need to borrow a bike trailer from us?
These bike trailers are easy to install on your bike and well will bring them to the food bank that you will be delivering groceries for. After you are finished with your delivery and no longer need the trailer you can ether bike it back to the food bank or we can work with you to find a good pickup time and place for returning the trailer to us. Currently our trailers require that you have a bike with a quick-release rear wheel.
