Electric Bikes 02

If anyone is interested in taking a short spin on an electric bike, Haddenham Safe Walking and Cycling group (HADDSWAC) and Zero Carbon Haddenham have arranged for Warlands Cycles in Oxford to bring three of their e-bikes to Haddenham for people to take a short, no-obligation test ride on the afternoon of Saturday 17th October, from 12.30 pm. You'll have the opportunity to pick their brains and experience the magic of electrical assistance.

Electric bikes are perfect for anyone who is interested in taking up cycling but feels it could be too hard-going, especially on hills. They generally offer varying levels of electrical assistance depending on your requirements, and can be a practical and highly eco-friendly means of transport. And with everything in easy reach, cycling is the perfect way to get around Haddenham.

Due to the Covid situation, we will be taking all necessary hygiene measures and asking people to book a slot before the event. This way we can ensure we maintain social distancing and keep to the 'rule of 6'. So if you are interested, please email alanthawley@yahoo.com and we will book you a slot, on a first come, first served basis and send details of the location of the trial.

We need to ensure we have a reasonable number of bookings to make it worth their while coming, so please get in touch asap. You don't need to be looking to buy, just curious to experience something new.
