KASIMIR — your cargo bike

Sustainable Cargobike Sharing, since 2013 (ongoing project)

Commons Cargo bike sharing for cologne. Ongoing group project with german non-profit wielebenwir e.V.

A trojan horse to establish both new contacts and connections in the local community, and a vision of a car-free urban landscape.

KASIMIR is a “commons cargo bike”: KASIMIR is free to lend and uses local community Centers and cafés as pickup locations, facilitating an alternative method of transportation in the spirit of commons.
