Cyclotricity E-bikes Blog, Duncan Booth

I've been using my e-bike daily, but not straying too far on it. I always joke that it is my wheel chair, that has become so true. Everywhere I would have ordinarily walked, I now zip along on my e-bike. I go to school with the boys in the morning on it, I do any jobs or shopping in town on it. I very regularly go to Spar on it. Both the boys love riding on the back of it.  I go to my Saturday job of park run marshal on it, nipping down the old railway line to the turnaround in no time on it. I go to my Sunday job of Junior park run lead bike on it. It is invaluable. last year I did 2500 miles on it.

Every single time I ride it out into Manor Park I’m amazed at how easy it is to move quickly. Any other time I move it’s awkward, uncomfortable, and tricky. Having my ebikes has totally changed my life, since I forgot how to walk straight. I just hope I can always ride them, most of my future plans rely on it!

I have loads of e -bike rides planned. I'll be going Coast to Coast in May, with bike the UK for MS, I will hopefully be accompanied by a couple of old school friends, whether by e-bike or not. If this goes well, I’ll be.going from Lands End to  John O Groats trip in July. Again with bike the UK for MS. I like the idea of having a support vehicle following, carrying everything.

My long term goal, which I like the look of, is to join up with bike the US for MS, on a trans America trip. I have permission from Yvonne and the kids, for a couple of months off.  The route looks awesome. I think I could do it.

Walking has got more difficult over the years, I just hope that I can continue to still ride my bike.

Had a look through all my spares the other day, then used them all to build yet another e-bike.

I am now the very proud owner of three awesome e-bikes.

I have had my rear wheel taken to pieces, and a melted cable replaced, by my dad. An amazing job.

I'd be too frightened to take the hub apart, let alone, replacing wires and being able to put it all back together fully functioning.

Client Testimonials

Hi Raj.
I just wanted to thank you for your kindness and help.
My dad who is 72 bought himself and his wife a kit each a couple of years back and he says it is the best thing he has ever done.  He stops and tells anyone who will listen that buying the bike has changed his life. He already had a bike but found it such a struggle to do anything other than ride around the streets so he didn’t really bother. He heard about electric bikes and went on a mission to find the best. He settled on Cyclotricity.  He started off cycling a short distance and then using his throttle to keep him going whilst he had a little rest.  Soon his fitness improved and now he goes out for miles and uses the throttle less but loves having the freedom to take on long distances. 
Best wishes
Dear Ben
I would just like to Thank you for the fantastic service that I received from your company. As you know I had an issue with my digital meter, I had a phone call from Ben at Cyclotricity the same day and this morning a new replacement had arrived.
This is fantastic service, I am so pleased that I purchased my bike through Cyclotricity. I will log onto your website and write a customer review and I am thinking in the summertime I may even purchase a electric bike for my wife, if and when I do I will certainly buy it through Cyclotricity.
Keep up the good work, I wish you all the success in 2017.
Normally people write in to complain but I feel that it's nice to tell people that they are doing things right.
Kind Regards

Hi Raj,
I just want to thank you for all your support through this build. You were/ are a great help!! Thanks for getting the technical team involved where necessary!
I feel like I should hire a model to stand next to the bike, to be able to send you a very nice photo!! As it is I will be wise and you will appreciate it if the photo is only of the bike and doesn't have me anywhere near!!
Have a good day!
