North West News
Eleanor Blaney from Brisbane tested out the Zoco Electric Bike last week and was 'caught' by the press (after a tip off). Eleanor will be riding with us in Vietnam for 2 weeks and had not ridden the actual bike yet. Shaun, our sponsor who supplied us with the electric bikes met Eleanor for a test ride. Now that she had a taste of Electric Assist she feels confident she can pedal the distance and better still, wishes she could cycle all the way to Singapore with us. The team agrees unanimously that she is welcome to change her mind, but her family and business (Foundry Productions) cannot possibly miss her that long!
Next week we are all meeting in Hanoi at the Rising Dragon Palace Hotel (who are supporting us with wholesale pricing!) in the old quarters where we have 6 bicycle batteries and spare parts already awaiting us. The 5000km ride to Singapore starts with the first leg to Hoi An on Saturday 1 September!
