In April we launched the Volt on Road photography competition and now we’re delighted to announce the three lucky winners!
Each winning photo was selected by our directors and received a £50 Amazon voucher for their efforts.
We’ve always loved the Volt On the Road part of the website, it shares real experiences from real customers, as they adventure on their electric bikes. We were so thrilled at the response to our photo comp and it was so great to see the variety of responses that came in. However, there could only be three winners and in no particular order, here they are…
Andrew – Volt Pulse
“We have had our Volt Pulse electric bikes for a year now. We love exploring the Derbyshire countryside and the e-bikes are a game-changer on those Derbyshire hills!
We try and get out in the summer evenings and on the weekends and have just enjoyed our first overnight adventure on the bikes and are planning our next.
We liked the Volt Pulse option for a hybrid bike to enable us to ride on the road and on trails, and were pleased to be able to buy a bike made in the UK.
The photo is of my wife Lisa, near a local attraction Bennerley Viaduct (near Ilkeston) and was taken last summer, it has subsequently been made accessible for walkers and bikes to cross it following some restoration work, and we were able to ride across it on a recent ride. The viaduct is an impressive Victorian wrought iron Grade 2 listed architectural structure dating from 1877, and is one of 2 remaining in Britain.
Lisa, who works for the NHS, was able to purchase her bike via a cycle to work scheme, she is a keen runner and walker, and was a hesitant cyclist but not anymore, and the bikes have been a great way of getting outdoors together.”
Brian – Volt Burlington
“Here I am on my new Volt Burlington electric bike alongside the statue of Gustav Holst in my home town of Cheltenham in the Cotswolds. I chose this location as it is in one of the many parks and gardens in the town where we like to cycle to for relaxation and is a popular landmark of the famous composer Gustav Holst who was a Cheltenham resident.
As you can see, this is a very versatile mode of cheap and efficient transport which is used on most days without the need to get the car out of the garage…and it’s healthier too. I have fitted panniers for those quick trips to the shops with the added luxury of a trailer for the occasional larger purchases which, incidentally, the bike pulls with ease.
I have wanted an electric bike for some time now and chose Volt after seeing the build quality and the obvious durability of a very well made machine plus it is British made which is important to me.
I am now in my 72nd year and proof that age is no barrier to the freedom and pleasure cycling can give to anyone, plus we are not burning fossil fuels nor have the parking problem headaches that modern towns all have.”
Stephen – Volt Pulse & Metro
“The photo was taken in the Aviemore area of Scotland.
9 years ago I saw a timelapse video on Volt’s Youtube Channel showing a Volt bike cycling up and down to the Cairngorm Ski Lift and I have always wanted to retrace that video for myself.
Last year while on holiday I did just that on my Volt Pulse and it was a buzz and a great feeling of achievement, as well as using the bike in and around the Aviemore area with my family.
My Pulse is the second Volt in the family with my wife having Volt Metro. I am sure there will be a third Volt having recently cycled the new version and heading out to buy one soon.
Keep up the great bikes Volt!”
This really was such a great response, and with more people than ever heading out on their Volt ebikes this summer, please keep sending us your amazing photos!
It’s a shame there could only be three winners but check out the photos below to see some of our favourite submissions…
