Zero Motorcycle Test Rides We now have a Zero X electric motorcycle available for test rides here in the UK. It's an amazing machine, as those who witnessed it take to the race track and demonstration area at Presteigne would agree. Maybe it's our superior British electricity, but the Zero X seems faster and more thrilling now than when we first raced it over in San Jose. Going from 0 to 60mph in less than 2 seconds, it runs off the most energy-dense Lithium power pack in the world and is built around an incredibly light aviation-grade alloy frame. It's a world class machine that you can test ride and order through 50cycles now. The Zero X will soon be joined in our showroom by the road-legal Zero S Supermoto bike (pictured left), which debuted for the media in London last week. You can book a test ride for either machine on our website or by calling 0844 800 5979. Casco Eyewear & Helmets
Casco's E.motion helmets are brilliant and sales have been brisk. Specially-designed for Electric Bike riders, they've also proved popular with regular cyclists, including the Lee Peyton and Garry McKay who are just about to complete their 15 isle, 300 mile charity challenge Casco also offer a range of eyewear for cyclists. As someone who's had a bumblebee bounce off my eyeball while tearing along on an electric bike, I know how important it is to keep my precious peepers protected against airborne debris. We'll be posting more details soon, but here's a sneak preview of some of the styles we'll be offering. Prices range from £49.99 to £59.99, including UK delivery of course. If you'd like to hear when these are available to order online, please send an email and we will notify you the moment they appear.
