XYZ CARGO will take part in the the International Cargo Bike Festival in Nijmegen / Netherlands from the 12th – 13th of April. The festival is one of the world’s biggest platforms for “cargo cycles and cyclelogistics”. In case you are around: come and visit us, check out the other cargo cycles and the speeches at the conference.
What will also be there with us: A 8-wheeled huge cargo cycle, which is based on our XYZ NODES construction system and was build by Nico Jungel in 2013.
The newly developed XYZ CARGO BIKE and the XYZ CARGO TRIKE are part of the Berliner Fahrradschau 2014, March 22nd & 23rd.
We are situated directly at the main entrance – come by and join us for a test ride!
Together with Cargo Bike Fans Berlin, we’ll show different approaches to self-built cargo cycles – so there is plenty of other interesting cargo cycles to see…
We tested the PARKCYCLE SWARM in Copenhagen:
The PARKCYCLE SWARM is a modular system that empowers persons to build an instant public park whenever and wherever they want to. The PARKCYCLE SWARM consists of a number of human powered mobile gardens. The number of individual gardens in a PARKCYCLE SWARM can vary and they can be combined to form different public parks. Areas normally used by cars like parking lots or roads in general can be reclaimed and used for non polluting peaceful social activities instead. Each vehicle has been designed to comply with local bicycle regulations. Therefore it can be placed in public space without restrictions and without paying parking fees or renting ground space.

The PARKCYCLE SWARM system is based on the XYZ SPACEFRAME VEHICLES project. PARKCYCLE SWARM is an Open Source project by N55 and Till Wolfer in collaboration with John Bela from the Rebar group.
