“MP gets on his bike to help firm”
“Gainsborough MP Edward Leigh joined parliamentary colleagues, Lords and an Olympic Gold medallist to show support for a local business and green moves to beat traffic congestion.
Mr Leigh rode one of Sturton by Stow – based Batribike’s battery powered bicycles through the streets of London in the All Party Parliamentary Bike Ride which was organised by the All Party Parliamentary Cycling Group.
Sue Coulson from Batribike said the firm was delighted that Mr Leigh took part.
“He was very keen to try the paces of the Batribike Diamond when the group stopped to watch some school children demonstrate their cycling safety skills. Mr Leigh enjoyed a fast lap of the square.”
Cycling athlete and Olympic winner Victoria Pendleton headed the ride which was held during Bike Week and involved members of the British Electric Bicycle Association.”
