Re: E-Bikes rules/Law

These rules and regs in my opinion are way behind the curve. If any government is serious about replacing short under 10 km car journeys with electric scooters or ebikes then you have to be thinking competitively, in terms of journey time. I think 40km/h, or more realistically 50 would broaden the a...

Re: Road style e-bike

+1 for the Cube agree. Though I would probably hang off till the Autumn as there are normally a slew of new E Bikes come on the market then.

Re: Helmet with visor.

I had a Casco but had to give up on it as the sweat produced underneath was excessive.

Re: Constantly?

Those ducks look a pretty constant feature. They're worth signage all on their own :D

My first and best is: Don't do as to other road users as they would do to you!

Re: E-Bikes rules/Law

I'm increasingly being passed in London by e-bikes doing well in excess of 20mph. Usually it's only mildly irritating (I hate being overtaken by other "cyclists" :wink: ) but I've also seen dangerous weaving and overtaking. This is only going to increase and I can't see these adapted mach...

Re: E-Bikes rules/Law

I have been tempted in the past to buy an off roader and mod it to do 25mph+. The only reason for this is because I've done a fair bit of bothy touring in the past, and getting off late trains to do 10 miles to your destination on a track can take hours with a conventional set up. With a fast ebike ...

Re: Lejog from Fort Augustus to JoG

I've heard the A82 to Inverness is pretty gruesome, anytime of the day and best avoided and I've absolutely no intention on taking the A9, this is more of a holiday than a suicide mission! In the great glen/loch ness:, should I follow the north side (new cycle track?) or the south side – minor road ...

Re: Lejog from Fort Augustus to JoG

The route that PH linked to is much as I would have chosen. The old military road along the south shore of Loch Ness does add about 20 miles but is delightful. It's a steady climb out of Fort Augustus but a great view from the top, and a super downhill to follow. A couple of suggestions, the B817 j...

Re: E-Bikes rules/Law

I had an E bike whizz past me the other day at what must have been 30mph+ (on the flat), obviously it must have been deregulated. What would be the consequences for the rider at such speeds if stopped by the police?
