    I've already started working on building one to my own spec, it'll be a bit different. 24v brush motor and lead acid batteries initially. Took me a while to track down a suitable 'pedal assist' controller.
    Conspiracy theories are only perpetuated because people go looking for them!

    Thought my cycling days were over. A couple of neuro surgeries took the wind out my sails.

    Tried one of my bikes last year was able to ride a cycle path...nearly burst out crying.

    I have a steel on one and a orange five-dont think I will be a able to do them justice but an absolute pleasure to turn my legs again.

    Hoping this summer to get me covid belly reduced and turn some miles.

    Still have a motorbike Sorned...you live in hope!!!!

    This Gravel bike has been superb. Rides like a road bike but has off road capabilities too if you want to do a bit of singletrack.

    Not really updated this much and truth be told I've not done much riding lately ��

    But I've been on a bit of a health kick and by increasing my general daily movement, keeping to a fairly sensible daily calorie allowance I've managed to drop just over a stone in 6 weeks or so.

    I've also booked myself a few days off in early September and am going to to the coast to coast cycle route from Workington to Sunderland. Should be a good challenge over 3 days. Let the training commence!
