Bike Week 2010 With Gocycle
LONDON, June 23, 2010/PRNewswire/ --
Team Green Britain's Bike Week is underway and is showing the
cycling is not only good for the environment, your health and your
but is a lot of fun, too. Whether you're a beginner or a pro, a commuter
fair weather cyclist, the Gocycle electric bicycle is the easiest way to
enjoy the ride.
To watch Gocycle talk about the nation falling back in love with cycling, please visit YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIz21uL6hi4).
Gocycle is the first ever two-wheeler with a frame and wheels
from magnesium alloy, making it not only super light but extremely tough
perfect for urban cyclists who ride several times a week. It seems there
plenty of those: statistics show that we're currently experiencing a
high in the number of cyclists on the roads, with 42% of those being
commuters*. With commuting and congestion charges still prohibitively
for some, cycling is a great way to save money.
With electric power at the touch of a button, Gocycle is not only
for anyone who doesn't want to arrive at the office hot and sweaty, but
also perfect for beginner cyclists who are gradually building up their
stamina. With enough battery power to take you up to twenty miles,
can give you a boost if you're struggling uphill, or setting off from
lights. Gocycle's patented Cleandrive(R) system - combining a fully
chain drive with the interchangeable and side-mounted PitstopWheel(R) -
fixing a flat tyre easy, and office workers need not worry about getting
grease on their clothes.
Richard Thorpe, designer of Gocycle and founder of manufacturer
Kinetics Ltd., said. "Team Green Britain is aiming to show that cycling
for everyone, and we believe the versatility of Gocycle can prove it. Of
course, being electric-powered means that Gocycle is also eco-friendly -
another reason for you to ditch the car."
