Why a cargo bike crit in Montreal?
We know how far ahead European cities are when in comes to urban mobility. Cargo bikes have now become the optimal transportation choice for many families and businesses. Cargo Bike racing in Europe has grown over the years. We've had the pleasure of participating in a race in Berlin 2019. It's very exciting to see all the different types are cargo bikes, and best of all its open to all riders. Allo Velo has been commited to growing cargo bike awareness in Montreal and across Canada.
