This weekend will see Presteigne in Powys play host to the annual electric bike rally, and event the organisers have said,
“If you own an electric bike or are interested in electric bikes or are thinking of buying a bike, there is no better place on earth to be than in Presteigne on the 9th, 10th of May.”
Despite its name, however, the event isn’t just for hard-core electric bike enthusiasts. The electric bike rally is also about promoting sustainable transportation as an alternative to fossil fuel hungry cars. Last year’s rally was a successful event, but organisers are expecting this year’s event to be even bigger and better, with a variety of different things going on through the day to keep visitors busy and engaged.
As well as showcasing new electric bike ranges from a range of manufacturers, there will be displays featuring a range of alternative methods of transportation, including hybrid, electric and micro cars, motorbikes and scooters; trikes and recumbent bikes. Other exhibitors at the event will include cycling and walking groups from the local area, and stalls promoting alternative fuel sources such as hydrogen fuel cells and bio-fuel.
So for a fun-filled family event to give you ideas and inspiration to escape the clutches of the carbon hungry car, head over to Presteigne this weekend.
