Gregg wallace learns to Braze and builds his own Brompton while Cherry Healey gets tips on how to cycle fast and visits one of our stores to get the low down on e-bikes. Gregg Wallace could not have imagined learning to braze would be so romantic :-)
Electric bikes will feature on a UK prime time program for the 1st time ever.
The electric bike market in the UK is growing fast and electric bikes are likely to feature frequently on mainstream television as more and more people discover the benefits.
e-Bikes are following a global trend but one that is in many ways inverted from adopter norms. This trend started in Asia, first Japan then China and has in the last 10 years exploded in mainland Europe and the UK. It started with older people rather than young - which is unusual for a high tech product - but young people are buying e-bikes in increasing numbers. More people are cycling for transport and leisure on e-bikes and they are reaping the financial and health benefits for doing so.
