Show Busy!

It has been a busy show season for Batribike. At this time of year we are wearing a track to the NEC Birmingham for the Cycle and Motorhome Shows.

As usual we have had a great time. We enjoy talking to our past and present customers and hearing all about their ebike adventures. To make things even busier we are celebrating our tenth anniversary with the launch of 2 new bikes!

The Cycle Show was busy with prospective new dealers - watch out for news on the website about them soon.

The test ride area was fantastically busy again with so many positive comments about our bikes and also the new anniversary centre motor bikes the TEN.

The Motorhome Show was really busy - over 100,000 visitors in six days, and it felt like was spoke to nearly all of them!

The doors open and the first visitors are on their way
The Sigma proved to be very popular at this show. A folding bike is always interesting to this type of leisure rider, but the hub gearing on the Sigma was a really positive point - dangly derailleur to catch when stowing and a really low step through too.

Now we are looking forward to next years shows!

An electric bike is an ideal leisure accessory. The Batribike Omega is seen here on a caravan rack

Top Cyclist Awarded Honorary Doctorate

On Wednesday, I was very proud to be at the Anglia Ruskin University graduation of my future daughter-in-law.

At the same ceremony, at Chelmsford Cathedral, top cyclist Alex Dowsett was presented with an Honorary Doctorate in Health Science. Alex has shown courage and determination in his commitment to become a world-class athlete. He is the only able-bodied, elite sportsperson in the world with haemophilia.

Born and bred in Essex, Alex has won a remarkable five British National Time Trial Championships – two more than Sir Bradley Wiggins. In May 2015 he extended the World Hour Record by nearly half a kilometre. He rode an astonishing 52.937 kilometres in an hour on the velodrome, at Manchester’s National Cycling Centre.


It was a privilege to be there – even accidentally – to see him receive his award. He will be an inspirational role model for all the students, particularly those studying Sports Science and Sports Coaching.

Congratulations Alex!
