Bike Week 2010 With Gocycle
LONDON, June 23, 2010/PRNewswire/ --
Team Green Britain's Bike Week is underway and is showing the nation that cycling is not only good for the environment, your health and your wallet, but is a lot of fun, too. Whether you're a beginner or a pro, a commuter or a 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 moulded 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 are plenty of those: statistics show that we're currently experiencing a 17-year high in the number of cyclists on the roads, with 42% of those being commuters*. With commuting and congestion charges still prohibitively high for some, cycling is a great way to save money.
With electric power at the touch of a button, Gocycle is not only great for anyone who doesn't want to arrive at the office hot and sweaty, but is also perfect for beginner cyclists who are gradually building up their stamina. With enough battery power to take you up to twenty miles, Gocycle can give you a boost if you're struggling uphill, or setting off from traffic lights. Gocycle's patented Cleandrive(R) system - combining a fully enclosed chain drive with the interchangeable and side-mounted PitstopWheel(R) - makes 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 Karbon Kinetics Ltd., said. "Team Green Britain is aiming to show that cycling is 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."
Gocycle is available from GBP49 per month under the Gocycle-to-Work(TM) scheme, or can be purchased directly online at http://www.gocycle.com or through a Gocycle Dealer**. MSRP GBP1,495
