Win an e-bike:

EDP Norfolk - - Inside -

Fan­tas­tic £1,699 prize from Mark 2 Bikes

Here is part two of our fab­u­lous competitio­n to win a £1,699 elec­tric bi­cy­cle from Nor­wich’s Mark 2 com­pany! We printed ques­tion one in the May is­sue of EDP Nor­folk and the sec­ond ques­tion and the en­try form are printed here.

Andy El­liot has been per­fect­ing his Mark 2 elec­tronic bikes for the past two years. The de­signer and cy­clist of Dray­ton, near Nor­wich, de­cided to de­velop his bat­tery pow­ered bikes af­ter con­ver­sa­tions with his dad, Mark, who had en­joyed cy­cling but was find­ing it harder to keep up. The com­pany cur­rently of­fers two mod­els of bike – the Scram­bler (moun­tain bike) and the X-Cross (hy­brid com­muter.)

The elec­tron­ics – bat­tery and mo­tor - are small enough to mean the bike will not stand out when locked on streets, but pow­er­ful enough to take on moun­tains (or a city com­mute). The bat­tery charge can last around 60 miles, de­pend­ing on how much as­sis­tance is used in each jour­ney, be­fore it needs to be recharged.

With sev­eral set­tings rid­ers can vary the as­sis­tance from noth­ing to enough power to smooth out the ef­fort of battling hills or head­winds, to bursts of full throt­tle for par­tic­u­larly pre­cip­i­tous sec­tions. The bikes are now sell­ing to in­di­vid­u­als and bike hire busi­nesses across the coun­try, and at­tract­ing rave re­views.
