Cargo cyclists replace truck drivers

In livable, human-scale cities, a lot of cargo can be moved more efficiently by bike.  The EU is funding a pilot project called CycleLogistics to collect data on just how effectively human powered cargo can be scaled up.  With modest electrical assistance, loads can scale up to as much as 250 or even 500 kg, and stay human scale.  It’ll be very interesting to see the results.
