Atmosphere Electric Bikes , alternative power


Although electric bikes are not much good here as it is 60 mile round trip to the shops i love the idea behind them and this company based in Bristol the owner which has linked to me through Twitter sounds like they truly care about the whole subject of green living

peace and light

Our Electric Bike Centre has been set up to give sensible information about this new form of green transport.
We watch many forms or transport around us - many are impacting our environment, some are positively good for it but we have a firm belief that the electric bike is the urban mover of the future and is the best compromise for the modern world.

We have picked our range of electric bikes carefully to give best value and best price while giving you straightforward reviews. We like the ranges of Powacycle, Powabyke,Urban Mover , Heinzmann and Izip and promise to review and test other brands as we reckon they have something to offer you
  • Bikes that are purchased from our shop come with a full pre delivery inspection and set up so they are ready to go – or you can choose to have the bikes delivered directly to you for your own assembly.
  • If you visit the shop we have several models available for demonstration
  • Cheapest powered transport in the UK - with fuel costs going beserk the electric bike sticks out as saviour of your pocket - 6p will take you 30 miles, no parking costs, no congestion charge, no worries and no hold ups

How can I save money buying an electric bike

Get Savings
Well it couldnt be easier if you are in full time employment
1) The government offers a Cycle to Work Scheme that many     employers sign up to already - and if they dont here is the link for you to give them
This can save YOU up to 50% of the cost of the bike
2) Many employers will offer you a mileage payment if you choose to use your bike for work purposes - cant argue with that
3) There are even some really far thinking employers that now offer extra holidays to cyclists . Why ? Well they are generally fitter and less likely to have as many sick days as non cyclists.
FREE Rescue Pack with every bike bought in January - worth £50

Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
