    14,000 miles ridden

    It looked like a lovely ride out to work. Once you've ridden that over the horizon and into the sunset, you could easily achieve those extra miles. :)

    Advise approaching Retiring from work

    Sorry for your loss. Is a draw down, part time, not an option for you? Many of my own work colleagues have found that to be a good choice.

    Ebike 250w questions

    In comparison this 1kw off roader also has a throttle. The bike trailing it is doing 22 mph downhill, with the aid of gravity.

    Ebike 250w questions

    I've two 250w ebikes with throttles on them. Me and the wife use them all the while, for distances of no more than 12 miles leisure riding. They're great for folks that have problems pedalling, for whatever reason, and they're handy for hill starts to help you get going. Here's a video. :)

    One of three (I think!!)

    Thanks for asking. I've been here all the time though. Just reading mostly. :) Yes, the £300 Cyclotricity Carrera, that I bought off 'Dave' here in March 2017 :oops: , is still going strong. That's my daughter riding it in the video above, from last May. I must give it a good look over at some...

    Seconded. ;) I've had this oxydrive kit bike for a few years now and it's taken some hammer, but it's still going strong. There's a close up pic of it at the end of the video. :)

    I've 3 different inexpensive ebikes. Two of them were bought, used from members here. They all do 15.5 mph, and they're all good fun. For what you plan to do, you should maybe consider picking a used one up from this forum, if there's anything suitable for sale. :)

    E-scooters for hire in Birmingham from next week - These are the rules..

    Two hundred machines will be in the city centre and can be used on roads with 30mph limit or less. :eek...

    Would it be hard to ride my e-bike while wearing filtered earplugs? Is it legal?

    That's not true I'm afraid. You can drive whilst wearing a helmet, headphones or earpieces, use a hands free bluetooth set to hold a conversation, blast out your music choice, and even be deaf whilst driving. All without penalty or lawful impediment. :)

    Question about Walk Assist on Shimano Steps

    Use a bulldog clip to hold the walk assist button in, it helps a lot. :)
