Try out or hire an ebike - Essex
« on: October 09, 2019, 10:30:29 pm »
Mrs R is expressing interest in an ebike, I'm not convinced it is the answer to her problem and am so reluctant to bet the h£s needed on her getting on with one.
Is there anyone within reach of Chelmsford who has got one that she could try out?
Alternatively is there anyone near by who is hiring them out.
She is 5'2" and a nervous cyclist so something upright would be good.

We live in Southend and have an e-assist Circe tandem. You would be welcome to come and give it a try.

Being 5’ 2” isn’t an issue. My wife is 5’ 7” and our grand-daughter is under 5’.  The latter could ride on the back 2 years ago when she was 7.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Really looking for a solo, Mrs R doesn't enjoy the tandem.

GK motors in witham had a demo fleet at the towns cycle event in the summer. Be worth contacting them to see if they have them permanently or if was from the manufacturer
