Both John and Pete will be riding American long wheelbase recumbents (the nearest thing to a motorised sofa you can find). Both bikes are fitted with eZee motors, controllers and batteries. They will both be carrying 3 x 10amp batteries. eZee motors and kits are available in the UK from http://www.onbike.co.uk and http://www.cyclezee.com.
Pete’s machine is a fairly well used Rans he brought off a guy in a car park in Swindon. (Click on pic for large photo)
John’s bike came from the super helpful Kevin at Dtek, New Thetford. email firstname.lastname@example.org It is a nearly new Bacchetta Bellandare. (Click on pic for large photo)
