Electric Bike Test Track at The Gadget Show Live!

The electric bike test track is a feature event at the show and several manufacturers volunteered bikes and their time to "man" the stand and give hundreds of showgoers the opportunity to test ride an electric bike.
The Granite Pro proved very popular

We have had a brilliant few days at the NEC show, and for many it is not over yet. Monday was set up day and we arrived to a sea of green carpet that was to become the Electric Bike Test Track. After a bit of ummimg and aaahhing and some head scratching the track was marked out with a bit of chalk. The carpet fitters came back and cut out the shape and stuck down the edges.

Tuesday was Press and Media day and things could have been quite quiet but the test track was busy all day. The new Granite Pro in orange was extremely popular with riders asking to try out the "cool" orange bike. Over 250 people filled in the disclaimer and had a chance to glide round the track.

Wednesday was the first proper open day of the show and again the test track was busy with more than twice as many riders as the day before - with the weekend to come I think things could get really manic.

We are delighted that Batribike dealer Trikes and Bikes were able to come along and are making it possible for us to attend the event, our thanks to them. Based at Sutton Coldfield they are passionate about all things bike and have links with Bikeability.

The show will be on until 6.00 pm on Sunday so there is still plenty of time to visit the show and enjoy the electric bike test track.
