Fri, 02 Feb 2007Andy Reed visited local company 50Cycles today to see for himself what contribution electric cycles can make to the environment and commuting and congestion. Andy said "I was pleased to come along to see this Loughborough based company today. Scott Snaith contacted me a few weeks ago to talk about the potential for electric bicycles in combating congestion and reducing emissions. I took one of the bikes for a short test ride and spoke at length with the company about how we could improve the take up of their product. I will be asking questions in Parliament as a result and will trial a bike during the year to see for myself how practical they are"
This was most exciting for 50cycles and it was good to see such enthusiasm from our local MP on such an important topic. Hopefully it is a serious start to Reducing Congestion and Pollution.
