How to choose an electric scooter

Jonno Leonard - Saturday, November 24, 2018

So, how do you go about choosing an escooter? Maybe you have had a ride on a Lime scooter and you like the idea, but not paying $18/hr for one, and having someone ride off on it when you stop for a coffee somewhere out-of-the-way! Read More

'E-Bikes Are For Soft People!'

Jonno Leonard - Sunday, November 27, 2016

We just got back from the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge. Luke was riding the 80km with his Takapuna Grammar School cycle team (top team in the country, I'll have you know!), and I had dutifully cheered from various vantage points as was making my way in the family hauler with the rest of the brood to meet up at the finish. So it was a 'share the road' situation, and a good-natured competitor clocked my plate as he cruised past, and pointed out to me (the driver of the rumbling beast) that 'E-Bikes are for soft people'! The cheek!! Read More

The child-like wonder of biking (and rope swings)

Jonno Leonard - Tuesday, October 25, 2016

Can you remember the last time you did something you loved as a child but never did as a grown-up? Childhood is filled with grin-on-the-face experiences, stuff you do 'just for fun'. Running. Leaping. Swinging. Whizzing along on whatever you have. And what are the commonalities with these experiences? Motion, in the main. Wind in your hair, sun on your face. And often as a shared experience, egging each other on with other like-minded wind/sun junkies.  Read More

Mercury eBike Demo Day in Devonport

Jonno Leonard - Tuesday, August 30, 2016

Windsor Reserve came alive with bright yellow over the weekend of 27th and 28th August, as Mercury Energy brought their  ‘Wonderful E.Bikes’ roadshow to town. Mercury have been running a series of national roadshow events to showcase the bikes and the use of clean energy, and this weekend was our turn in the sun (and the wind, as Saturday proved!).I estimate the number of test rides to be between 150 and 200 over the 2 days, and saw riders from 16 to 90 years old put the demo bikes through their paces with a  circuit up to the Navy Base and back. There was a lot of interest across the board, and most riders came back with a big grin on their face, clearly enjoying the wind-in-the-hair sensation! The ZM crew stopped by, and there was even a passing pod of Orca to really make the visit memorable. For those who missed out, we have the range of SmartMotion bikes in the shop for perusal and testing. You might just find the answer to driving on Lake Road is….not driving on Lake Road!   Read More
