The Batec Electric bike is possibly the most life transforming piece of equipment that I have come across as auser.
I live and work in London and so everyday I clip the Batec on to my chair - in seconds - and zip off to catch the tube (the accessible stations!), the bus or simply cruise along in the bike lanes all around town.
When I get where I'm going, be it work, shopping, the gym, a park, a restaurant, a bar or club - I simply detach it and carry on as normal!
Even users with very severe disabilities can disconnect and connect the Batec autonomously.
The bike is incredibly fast (I got it to 30 kph!) and easy to charge so you can travel for hours.
Batec can be fitted to almost any manual wheelchair, and is also available in manual. Prices vary. If you work (in the UK), Access to Work will contribute towards the cost of the bike but also bear in mind it pays for itself in what you will save in taxis and public transport!
Please contact the lovely Stuart (pictured) at Cyclone Mobility quoting "Sophie" to find out more.
I swear it will transform your life!!
