UPDATE: JUNE 2023
Rider recruitment is currently on PAUSE due to unprecedented demand!

There are lots of ways to help including FUNDRAISING, MARKETING, BIKE MAINTENANCE, LOGISTICS, FINANCE & IT to name a few!
Our organisation was founded by riders and we’re proud that we now have a growing community – all passionate about the vision of Chorlton Bike Deliveries.
As an organisation, we model an alternative to car and van deliveries. Our riders are role models with their ‘better-by-bike’ approach and each one os us cares about making a positive difference in the local community.
As a rider you’ll get to interact with local residents and representatives of the businesses and organisations we work with.
Many of our riders are volunteers who choose to donate their time to support our cause.
Others are paid riders who undertake specific commercial deliveries.
‘Commercial’ rides are paid at the national living wage and our commitment to that is enshrined in our values.
Some riders do both paid and volunteer work. And as a cooperative we encourage and enable riders to get involved in other parts of what we do like projects or events!
Riders are required to join induction sessions and training before they can ride for us.
Riders are responsible for keeping our bikes and trikes safe and following our health and safety and other protocols.
We also encourage riders to undertake Bikeability level 3 training and are monitoring best practices around training in the cargo bike sector.
Some riders began with us with little experience, and we helped them become confident and proficient delivering on Manchester’s roads.
