Host Profile: The Electric Transport Shop

Suffolk Bike Aid encountered the charming Eddie Kehoe with his Ebike Roadshow at the HinT event "Watts, From Where?" recently held in Halesworth. The founder of the UK's longest established electric bike shop enthusiastically grasped the Bike Aid concept; realising that any no-cost infrastructure to support cyclists must be a good thing.

Within a few hours, notice came that all the Electric Transport Shop locations in London, Bristol, Cambridge and Oxford will be hosts to Bike Aid. Naturally anything more than the loan of a wheel nut spanner and pump and their encouragement of your DIY repair would have to be charged for. The company provides buyers of some commuter models free cycle-rescue insurance from ETS but Bike Aid will be available to any cyclist, electric or not, calling in and needing assistance.

All their shops offer a wide range of electric cycles to test-ride and full after-sales services as well as being child-friendly and have a customer toilet, free beverages and somewhere to sit.

Each branch has its own phone number where helpful, enthusiastic people like Eddie await your call 7 days a week. Please visit their highly informative website to find out everything about electric bikes and lightweight electric transport.
