I am Malcolm Saunders. I am also a director of E Rider and live in Wirral. I use my E Rider almost every day. I go to the post office and local shops as well as going for pleasure rides all round the area.
Occasionally a high powered cyclist will overtake me as I travel along the bike lane at about 15 mph. I don’t mind that at all. I am sitting comfortably on my large, scooter style seat and enjoying my surroundings. If I want a bit of exercise I can pedal, but I don’t do that too much because I have an arthritic knee and I wouldn’t be able to get very far on an ordinary pedal bike. The E Rider gives me a huge amount of freedom of movement without the fuel costs of taking the car.
I have got no doubt that the future of transport is electric and a big part of it is going to be on two wheels. Low cost, environmentally friendly electric scooters reduce congestion and pollution at the same time as being really easy and comfortable to use.
