Just within my range from Liverpool, UCycle2 is based in Halfpenny Lane, Helkin, Lancashire where they sell Batribikes. As you can see from the detail of their website they use solar panels to caharge the bikes which are stored with the stables for the horses.
I could cycle there on my Giaant Express to try an electric bike on country roads. Hmm. Maybe I could have my Giant and a Batribike….
