This funky glow-in-the-dark e-bike will help you stand out from the crowd

Looking for an e-bike to replace your car? French bike builder Calendar might have just the thing: an electric cargo bike that can carry up to 200kg, folds down in a few seconds, and glows in the dark to keep you safe at night.

Electric cargo bikes were once the domain of stores and couriers, but there’s increasing demand for them as a practical, green replacement for a second car. Last year, Raleigh launched the Stride range (an electric bicycle and tricycle that can lug loads of 80kg and 100kg respectively), and BMW’s design for a weird tilting cargo e-bike became a reality.
