Re: hebridean cycle way Bike transfer

We are doing the Hebridean way in May but don't have time to get all the way back in time and our car will be in Oban so what we are doing is this. Park Oban sail to Barra. Do our cycle trip and on the return leg we are flying with 2 bikes from Stornoway to Benbecula ( they allow 2 bikes per flight)...

Re: New E Bike Purchase

Just had a trial ride on the Crosspath and very impressed indeed. Motor is smooth as silk and the deal on offer at Halfords at present makes it a very good buy especially with and extra 10% discount for British Cycle members

I think I need to go have a test drive of the unisex Crosspath
