The Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Councillor Marlene Fairhead visited the event as it opened and was pleased to take a ride on the Batribike Dash Pro. Councillor Fairhead was born in Potter Heigham and lived in a house on the riverbank. She said that as a child if you didn’t ride a bike you just didn’t go anywhere. It was the acceptable mode of transport and she used to cycle along the riverbank.
The Mayor was delighted with her ride on the Dash Pro, it was her first time on an electric bike and she could really see the advantages and how electric bikes could get more people cycling. The Mayors consort, her husband Peter, also had a ride on the Dash and was impressed by its performance.
All of the Batribike demo bikes had a busy day. Many people came down to see us having heard about it on Radio Norfolk. Both the Dash Pro and Breeze folding electric bikes proved very popular and there was lots of interest in the new Trike-R too. Batribike was also demonstration the Cykell tow ball mounted cycle carrier. Everyone was extremely impressed by the ease of use that the just click system provides.
Despite the wet start everyone that attended had a great day.
