VCD - Cargo on Wheels / Lasten auf die Räder

The VCD (Verkehrs Club Deutschland German Traffic Club) launched their information portal on the use of cargo bikes. VCD presented this project at the Cycle Logistics Federation Conference during the International Cargo Bike Festival on 12 April in Nijmegen.
