Hi Rex,

Thought you might like to know how much we’re enjoying the bikes. We did about 10 rides in the Sth Island in Feb. The biggest was part of the Round the Mountains cycleway. We left the motorhome at Mavora lakes, & biked to Mt Nicholas Stn, lake Wakatipu. Over the infamous Von Hill, which climbs 1000ft in 1.5kms!!! & it’s rough shingle 4WD road, with some washed out bouldery riverbed fords.. We biked there & back, total 83kms. I still had 32% power, Stuart about 50%. No trouble recharging one at a time in the motorhome. We picked up the necessary bits to wire the converter unit directly to the house battery, much better than jumper leads.

Around home we are all hills, some pretty steep, so we’re biking each day, about an hour. I’ve done over 1000kms now.

Was good to have Ed & Nicky try our bikes, & convert theirs. We have other friends waiting for lockdown to finish so they can come & try ours. I think it might be a while before they/we, over 70’s can go far. At the Tekapo NZMCA camp, we created a lot of interest too. So the message is getting out, we pass on your contacts.
