Santa really took a shine to the Batribike Dash – could it be because of the similarity of its name to one of his reindeer? Or maybe the stylish Dash appealed to his ideal of keeping up with todays technology.
Santa tried out the folding electric bike at the Advent Fayre in Linlithgow on the Easygo Electric Bikes stand. The plucky bike has bags of power for all those Christmas deliveries.
Alternatively an electric bike could be the ideal Christmas present. Batribike has a range of models suitable as Christmas gifts. There is a choice of a folding bike like the Dash or the Batribike Breeze or if you would prefer there is a range of larger wheeled bikes including the Dutch style Diamond.
All bikes are available countrywide from the Batribike network of official dealers.
We have just increased our warehouse space by a whopping 1600 sq. ft. A growing dealer network and increased demand for Batribike electric bikes has meant that space had become a little tight sometimes in the Batribike warehouse.
We are delighted to have been able to expand this space at our existing premises, giving us lots more room to store new bikes. The potentially quieter time during this part of the year seemed to be the ideal moment to do all this work. However we have found that there has been no slow down in demand for electric bikes and we are still busy. In fact we have had two container deliveries in the last four days.
As part of this expansion the Batribike office has also doubled in size and moved into a prestigious new space above the old office and showroom. The move took place over the weekend so as not to disrupt normal working hours. We were up and running with phones and internet in place ready for the start of the day today.
Workshop facilities have moved into the old showroom and offices. The old showroom incorporates the dealer training facility alongside the workshop and there is a second workshop in the old office.
The recent voucher scheme we ran from our stands at the Cycle Show and the Motorhome and Caravan Show held at the NEC near Birmingham have proven to be an unparalleled success.
Remember, the vouchers from the Motorhome and Caravan Show need to be used by the 3rd November at your Local Batribike Dealer.
Customers have been very pleased to get a “show bargain” with the added bonus of having purchased the bikes at their Local Dealer of choice. This gives peace of mind for service and after sales.
Batribike Dealers have been very pleased with the uptake and a boost to sales at this time of the year.

Batribike has had a very busy few weeks signing up new dealers that have been impressed with the quality of the Batribike electric bikes.
We are very pleased to announce a whole list of new dealers around the country who now stock a range of Batribike electric bikes. The new dealers range from Taunton and Pembrokeshire in the southwest to Nottingham and Sutton Coldfield in the Midlands.
Nationwide e-Bikes based in Taunton is determined to supply the best made electric bikes combined with excellent back up and support.
Ken’s Auto Spares is a family business in Nottingham that was established in 1973. They believe that electric bikes are an excellent mode of transport in cities.
Pembrokeshire Bikes is situated in the beautiful southwest corner of Wales with some excellent cycle routes right on the doorstep.
New Life Mobility can be found in the Tower Ramparts Centre right in the heart of Ipswich. It’s located in the driest area of the country and is well served by a substantial network of bike paths across the town.
Trikes and Bikes in Sutton Coldfield are just on the doorstep of an extensive cycle network. Many of the cycle routes are traffic free right into the heart of Birmingham.
We are delighted to welcome all these new dealers to the Batribike electric bike network.
The Cycle Show at the NEC, Birmingham, is always the pinnacle of the show year for electric bikes and this year was no different.
The Batribike stand was in its usual prime position right opposite the test ride area. This year the difference was that the marshalling area for the bikes was ‘electric only’ the road bikes had been moved to another hall and came onto the test track through a different door.
The separate area for marshalling was ideal. It meant that only those really interested in electric bikes were in the area. This gave us the opportunity to spend more time with the customers who were really interested. Ralph spent the whole show in the test area and was busy all the time. We recorded the milages for the bikes in the test area and our four bikes travelled a huge total of 130 miles over the four days.
The Batribike stand was also busy throughout the show. We have been explaining how the bikes work and about all the fantastic features that have been incorporated. Many show visitors were really interested in the Dash and how well it folded and even remembered its tv appearance.
There was loads of interest in our range of electric bikes from the trade and we anticipate several new dealers appearing on the website soon …so watch this space.
The whole team enjoyed the show and it was lovely to see some of our past customers and hear about their travels with Batribike. We are now planning our stand for next year, it is amazing how fast this year has flown past, so it won’t be long before we are back at the Cycle Show again.
The last outdoor motorhome show of the season is held at the Lincoln Showground which is just six miles from the Batribike showroom and workshop. It is a great show for us to attend as it is right on our doorstep.
This year it was also the first Motorhome show that we had attended from base as Batribike dealers had been attending some of the other shows around the country to demonstrate our electric bikes.
The Lincoln show is apt to be quite windy and also often wet. Set up day (Thursday) was no exception as we battled to get the gazebo up in the rain. Then the weather changed … for the better!
On Friday the Red Arrows we practicing and wowing the crowds with their antics. I was really pleased to get a snap of the heart they drew in the air above our stand.
The Red Arrows love Batribike
Sunday was an amazingly hot day, summer was here again and everyone was thinking about cycling and loads of test riders out on our electric bikes. It was great to see some of our existing customers and hear about where they had been on their bikes.
Now we are looking forward to setting up at the Cycle Show at the NEC on Wednesday.
