Linda & Mike on Tour

 

Our E-bikes have revolutionised our biking experiences.  No longer do we have to carefully plan our routes to avoid big hills.  We are not afraid to tackle any terrain and have found that although our bikes have only 20” wheels they can take the rough with the smooth.  

We use our bikes as transport as well as for pleasure riding them into town (which saves not only petrol but also parking fees) and in my case riding to the gym (which is extra exercise).  

Our bikes fit easily into the ‘garage’ of our motorhome and we have explored many areas that we could not have got to on foot.  We really enjoy cycling along the many disused railway lines that have been adapted into cycle tracks.  And they are not always flat!  Whilst away on our trips we have cycled around a few lakes too, and, surprisingly, they are not always flat either!  

Having the assistance from the motor helps a great deal especially when coming to a junction and pulling away.  We have found that by putting the bike into Sport or even Turbo it gives us the help to get away quickly.

Nationwide Bikes have been extremely helpful when we have had questions or problems with our bikes.  They didn’t make me feel inadequate when I couldn’t remember how to use the Walk button - a great help when faced with a hill or rough terrain too steep to cycle.  

Our bikes have given us a new lease of life and we really enjoy our bike rides together.
