Gtech Cycle Track at Explore Britain
Take a Gtech eBike around a purpose built route when you visit the Explore Britain Arena at BBC Countryfile Live.
New for 2018, take a Gtech eBike around a purpose built route when you visit the Explore Britain area at BBC Countryfile Live.
The Gtech Cycle Track gives you an opportunity to take an eBike for a spin and find out for yourself what all the fuss is about. Take your pick from the road-going City and Sport models to the more adventurous eScent Mountain eBike. Ordinary cycling will never feel the same again.
*For age 13 and above.
Riding the Gtech eBike is very simple. You pedal to go faster and brake to slow down. There are no confusing gears to worry about. Simply pedal your Gtech electric bicycle for an easy journey. With our electronic bike there is no oily chain. We’ve replaced it with a clean carbon belt drive as used on high-performance motor cycles.
A built in computer continually measures your pedaling, smoothly adjusting the power to give you a boost when you need it. Everything in our electronic bicycle is automatic; if you pedal, the bike will help you up to 15mph, but you can pedal harder if you like and go faster. You will feel the power of the electric bike most if you reach a hill and start to slow down.
At the heart of the Gtech eBike is our latest Lithium-ion battery, the same, light-weight, high performance technology that is used to power electric cars – giving you a range of up to 30 miles*. Plenty for a day’s adventure or most trips to work and back. The electric bike has an easy to read LCD display, to tell you how much charge you’ve got remaining. The battery removes from the frame for charging. A mains charger is supplied, which fully recharges the battery from flat in just 3 hours.
