On Location with Estuary TV

Yesterday I was out and about in North Lincolnshire with Estuary TV. Batribike was invited to take part in a programme about cycling around local communities.

Last week Estuary TV had been working with conventional pedal cycles and had been filming with Batribike stockist, Rusty’s Cycles, in Scunthorpe. This week it is all about electric bikes.

I went down to Picarock our local dealer in Cleethorpes to meet the team. The presenter, Luke Adams, will be riding the Batribike Omega in Cleethorpes and surrounding area for two days. He will be seeing local sights and interviewing local people on his journey.


Filming started outside with Luke telling viewers that he would be using an electric bike for this week’s adventure. He then went inside the shop to interview Richard Soulby of Picarock.


Moving outside, I showed Luke the finer points of the Batribike Omega and was filmed talking about Batribike’s ten years in the electric bike industry.


We moved over the road to the fantastic cycleway along the prom at Cleethorpes, and Luke had his first try on an electric bike. He loved it! Not only was it easy to ride but comfortable too. Luke also loved the on-trend brown and cream colours of the bike.


Filming then of the bike in action and the fantastic traffic free cycle lane.


A production meeting with Luke still on the Omega.


Reporting in action!

Riding past Cleethorpes Coast Guard Station and reporting to camera at the same time.

I had arrived at PicaRock on a misty drizzly morning but the sun had soon come out and I had had an enjoyable morning. Luke and the Estuary TV team were off to Cleethorpes Pier for other interviews.
I will be back in Cleethorpes this afternoon and am looking forward to meeting up with them again.

Many thanks to Richard and Mick at Picarock for their hospitality.

Today I have just been to collect the bike and was delighted to meet up again with Luke and Neil the Cameraman and Director. It was great to hear that they have embraced the idea of electric bikes and enjoyed their two days with the Omega.
