Often neatly mounted on the lower frame, the battery on an electric bike will typically provide between 25 and 85 miles of assisted cycling, depending on power setting, weight of cyclist, gradient and tyre pressure. At full power, the motor will double your effort, enabling you to go twice as far using the same amount of energy as on a conventional bike or up hill with half as much legwork! So long sweaty commuting!
E-bike experts Cycleshack, based in Lewes and East Grinstead, will have a couple
of models on show for you to see / sit on / test ride! www.lewescycleshack.co.uk
The Nissan LEAF was arguably the first 100% electric car to break into the mainstream market. Over 15,000 have now been sold in the UK.
