Electric bike update

Yesterday Tracy cycled to a place she usually drives to once a week for work. It was 15.5 miles each way, and the other end is 140 metres higher than our house! She did it in about 1hr10m, with a short break, and one battery has sufficient capacity to do the round trip, although she's able to charge up at the other end. A good result we think, and well done to Tracy (who had a slightly sore bum after 31 miles in the saddle)!

Also, an ecology expert (Patrick Roper) that Tracy knows through work tolds us that the plant we thought was Common Calamint is in fact Lesser Skullcap, which is somewhat rare. Here's the picture again:
