When Mark isn't working for the Manchester Bike Kitchen, a non-profit organisation designed to help people become self-sufficient and proficient in riding a bike, you'll find him transporting surplus food from supermarkets to homeless shelters in Manchester.
Mark was looking to replace the van he uses to move bikes, bike parts, tools, and food around the city.

The Tern GSD and Carla Cargo trailer offered the functionality and impressive carrying capability Mark needed to replace his conventional Van.

They need to be sure the bike is reliable, capable, and versatile enough to satisfy all their requirements. Before committing to a Cargo Trailer, Mark took advantage of a unique opportunity: the Manchester and Salford eCargo Bike Library. The eCargo bike library allows individuals and businesses to try out cargo bikes before taking the plunge.
Having used the bike for a while, Mark found that the Tern GSD and Carla Cargo combination exceeds his expectations. It can carry loads of food in and easily bypass the traffic and congestion around Manchester. Even a closed road doesn't get in the way of the GSD.
