eBikes

Last weekend Pauline and I went for a quick ride to Waipiata to grips with our eBikes.

The weather was fine and sunny but the temperature was hovering around zero in the shady places.

The track was just thawing after a very hard frost and was slushy and this made riding really tough, well it would have had we not had an electric motor to help us along! 
This is one of those occasions where a little assistance made all the difference.

Our plan is now to invest in a few more of these bikes. They are not for everyone and we will encourage able bodied people to make the journey on the traditional bike. However, for some this will be the thing that enables them to enjoy New Zealand's Original Great Ride.
