Hello Paul IOM,
I was more than satisfied with that first test test ride and here are a few more thoughts on range:
I slightly underestimated my distance on that ride, I’ve re-measured it at 18.5km each way using a route planning app. 37 KM in total. Also, I should have said that I didn’t reach the max range on that trip. The needle was well into the red but I was still going well and wondered about doing a few more laps around the village, because it was bloody good fun in the sun. Also, I used the local minor roads which have twice as many gradients as the same journey using the main roads. So that was absolutely a total workout for the bike and I was very pleased. Its range has turned out to be at the upper end of my expectations before I was able to test it locally.
