Hi @E-bikes,

the forecast looks perfect for next Thursday, so I thought we could go out on a ride to Falasarna.

This is an easy, circular, all on-road route, about 35km long. Some hills and great views.
It is a good chance to test an e-bike for a couple of hours, and all for free!
We have 2 e-bikes available. First come first served.
Please reply if you’re interested.

Hi Manu

Yes, I have some interest in this if the weather is OK. However, as I am not a seasoned rider, quite happy for someone more experienced to do this ride if you get more interest. Hope the batteries last!

Thanks, Paul

Hi Manuel,


I am interested.


Thanks. Roy

Paul is unsure he can make it on Thursday, so there is still one space available if anyone else would like to join this ride.
