The event consists of a cycle parade around Lammas Land and the city centre, followed by cycle stalls and cargo bike try-outs at the Cambridge University Library.

Participants should meet at the library from 11am to depart on the ride at 11.30am. Stalls and cycle try-outs will be open from 12.15pm to 2.30pm.

Roxanne De Beaux, executive director of Camcycle, said: “The Cargo Carnival is a celebration of Cambridge’s leading role in the growth of the use of cargo bikes for businesses and families.

“Every year new innovations bring a broader range of these cycles onto our streets making them a sustainable alternative to driving for more everyday and business journeys.

“We love to highlight the work of Cambridge’s cargo bike pioneers to encourage others to give them a try, so if you do business by bike in this region get in touch and we’ll add you to our bike business directory.”

Taking place two days after World Car-Free Day, the event aims to celebrate all the things that can be carried by bike and raise awareness of the power of non-motorised transport.

Those taking part are encouraged to join in the fun with cargo bikes of all shapes and sizes and creativity is also encouraged: past events have seen a shed, a bathtub and a beehive on wheels.

The cargo bike traders attending are Outspoken Cycles, Electric Bike Sales, the School Run Centre, Townsends and Cyclecentric with a host of cargo bike options suitable for everyone. Conker of Cambridge will also be there with some cargo bike safety accessories.
