Potholes, bikers and “grim” headwinds are all negated with the Volt Burlington in Alan Hendry’s John O’ Groat Journal and Caithness Courier article.
Trialling the electric bike as part of an active travel scheme operated by Home Energy Scotland and funded by Transport Scotland, Alan Hendry headed out on a 38-mile round trip from Wick, Caithness.
As an e-first-timer, Alan Hendry is candid about his preconceptions before jumping on his loaned Volt. But it’s fair to say by the end of his journey, there’s one more e-bike convert!
“…you are simply opting for a healthier, more environmentally friendly way of getting from place to place than sitting in a car. It makes for a much more enjoyable and satisfying journey. And it’s good for the planet into the bargain.”
Also mentioned in his article is Cycle UK’s Rural Connection project (https://www.cyclinguk.org/rural-connections ) which supports people in Scottish rural communities in making more active everyday journeys.
