Finally, after returning from two months overseas, I have got this little beauty up and going, and this is me on my longest trip yet, from Te Atatu Peninsula in to Mission Bay and back. That's about as long as the battery lasts too. It still feels a bit of a cheat, but at the moment, with a touch of siatica and the looming potential of less cycling, this electric bike has opened up a whole new vista of possibility. AND I still have my other bike for shorter trips. It's a win win.
We started out a small group of women in Te Atatu, Auckland, New Zealand, recently determined to return to the art of 'slow cycling' and the joys of getting places in style on two wheels. The group now includes the odd man, who is, of course, a 'handlebro'. This is a record of our ongoing adventures.
