Anyone in York have an idea of how to sell a cargo/family bike?

I have an outgrown and now rather unloved Winther Kangaroo cargo bike, which needs some cleaning up and servicing but would be of great use to someone. I see more and more families on these bikes around York!

Ebay and gumtree not yielding great results.

Do any York people have an idea about how I might link the bike up with the new worn that I'm sure must be out there? It does have to be sale not give away I am afraid, as you know they are pricey.

I'm going to try the card in good old Cycle Heaven of course!

Do you know of the Steiner School in Fulford. Perfect place for Parents who would want to buy a Cargo Bike. They have a notice board and a regular newsletter.

Hi all

Just to update - am really sorry but this went a few weeks ago via gumtree to a lovely family and their toddlers.

Sorry I couldn't sell it more than once!

Thanks for the tip about Steiner - my DS did toddler group there and I'm sure that would have been a great route.

Best wishes!
