A hundred miles in a week may not seem like that many to some cyclists, but given I work full time nine-to-five and don’t have the option of cycling to work I am very happy with my achievement. As with all new bikes, I needed to take the Wisper 806 back to the dealer for a tune and overall check after six weeks or a hundred miles, obviously whatever happened first.
I bought my Wisper 806 folding electric bike for a motorhome adventure and wanted to get the tune and check out of the way before setting off for my travels, just to make sure everything was okay and it was running sweet. I bought my 806 two weeks before the trip in the motorhome, therefore I had fourteen days to get 100 miles on the clock.
A hundred miles doesn’t seem very far, but when you realise you’ve covered less than a third of the distance after a grueling 2 hour ride you soon appreciate a hundred miles is quite a distance, and even more so if you’re not in great shape.
In order to cycle the hundred miles I did a few longer rides, and had little choice if I were to get the mileage covered in the time available. I am fortunate that I live in the sticks of Norfolk and have miles and miles of relatively quiet, traffic free roads to cycle around. Norfolk is a beautiful county, and if you want to fully appreciate the scenery a bike is the best way to do it. There are loads of great cycle rides around Norfolk and a sample of the longer rides I did in reaching my 100 miles includes:
A relatively new eBike owner and loving the experience – I really wish I had bought an electric bike before
