You’ve probably seen some form of electric bike on the road during your time as a cyclist and thought – ‘lazy bugger’ or ‘cool but not for me’. Well trust us, 30 seconds on an Easy Motion bike will change your mind. Built by the Spanish manufacturer BH Bikes the Easy Motion bikes you’ll see popping up on the roads and trails of SA are dirt devouring mountain machines.
Farmer Glen’s wife Mandy has been tearing up the UmkomaasValley on three hour plus rides. The beauty of the Easy Motion bikes is in the instant acceleration – the motor only kicks in when you pedal so as soon as you turn the cranks you launch forward at a thrilling rate. They’re perfect for commuting, getting out and about if you’re not too fit or for the members of the family who wouldn’t normally be able to keep up on longer rides.
