C2C on a Whyte Coniston E-Bike
Long standing customer of ours, Jeff Clegg (3rd from left), had planned a coast to coast ride from Whitehaven to Tynemouth over three days.
Unfortunately, a health issue left him unable to take part on his usual bike so he contacted us with the idea of using an electric bike instead. The rest is history….
“Hi Guys, just thought I’d update you on our ride last weekend, the bike was brilliant, we did Whitehaven to Penrith, Penrith to Stanhope, Stanhope to Tynemouth, just under 50 miles per day. Middle day has 5 big ascents which the Coniston breezed up, most of the time in Eco setting using Normal and High for short steeper sections, Crawleyside Bank out of Stanhope is the steepest of all and in High on the big sprocket it just zoomed up. Total mileage 148, first 2 days still 15 miles left in Eco, last day battery still 50%!
Really glad I bought it, now in France for a week or 3 of sun & flat roads,
See you soon, Jeff.”
