E-bike Rally goes off!
Our inaugural e-bike rally was a great success today! Lots of people test rode a range of electric bikes, from the staid transport variety, through fast and sexy, to downright funky.
Many thanks to the retailers (and one local bikemaker) who brought them along. In particular BikeRide and Eco-Bikes had an excellent range available for people to test. The proud current e-bike owners were also keen to share their experiences-
and several offered their bikes to newbies to have a go.
About 15 e-bike riders followed Alan out onto the road. We followed the river bank along some interesting new cycle paths, then through suburbia over Lutana hill to Cornelian Bay and then back to MONA along the Inter City Cycleway.
Back at the MONA Market, we proudly showed off our bikes to interested market goers, and there were more opportunities for test rides while we enjoyed the music, food and wines. It was a great way to end the ride.
Many thanks to Alan for organising the day, and to Austin and Greg, our valiant non-electric "sweeps", who noticed the hills a lot more than we did.
