  • "Toying" with getting back on a bike (E. Bike)

    Hi folks, hope you are all doing well.

    After selling up "Lock, Stock & Barrel" due to my Coccyx issues, I am "toying" with trying to get back in the saddle via an E.Bike / Haibike Fat or similar as I am missing not having a bike so much. Willing to give it a try if nothing else.

    Hopefully report back if I get sorted, and if I feel up to a club level ride (if you'd have me back that is).

    Stay Safe
    Can we ride at a relaxed pace? It's my first ride since last time!!!

      Don't say s*** like that, I'm just back from Spain / Portugal and half way through 14 days self isolation.

        Don't worry. I'll buy your ebike off your missus for what you told her you paid for it.

            Hey Ian, good to hear from you. Get yourself on an e-bike - you'll be in the majority soon

            Stay well & hope to see you when the apocalypse is over

              Be good to see you back Ian, I bought an E-bike last year, they make a big difference, I can keep up with Peter and not break a sweat, it was worth it just for that

                    There's still the question of skill

                      I'd try borrowing / hiring one first to avoid it being an expensive mistake if it makes no difference to your back.

                      If paying anything, don't forget to pm me with details, what it is for, and by what method. Cheers.

                          I have been riding my e bike since May. I ride my hard tail during the week and my e bike on the longer rides at the weekend, even leading some of the rides. All positive, except that you have to watch battery charge level on longer rides to avoid running out of power . But that is the weakness of all electric powered vehicles and bikes . Downhills and technical sections are generally just as strenuous as on a non e bike, so it's a good work out


                          Hire one and see what you think
