Guernsey Post has provided its posties in Sark with brand new electric bikes that can safely take a delivery load of up to 200kg.
Simon Adams, Sark Postie said “We are ecstatic with our new bikes. Our original post bikes only had a load limit of 16kg in the front basket and a 20kg rear carrier limit. The new bikes can take up to 200kg, which is better suited to the increase in parcels we receive.”
The posties trialled a Tern 200 cargo bike before Guernsey Post purchased two new ones.
Shelley Carberry, Health and Safety Manager at Guernsey Post said: “Once the law changed in Sark to allow e-bikes, our Posties got in touch about the possibility of using these on delivery and we were really happy to support the team with this. They can load more parcels on these bikes, and with the battery power cycling fully loaded isn’t an issue.”
