    I think my electric bike battery may be on the wane :Doh:

    Having cycled a 12 mile round trip yesterday to Mont-St-Michel and back I decided to be a bit more adventurous today. A round trip of about 20 miles from campsite in Pontorson to Cherrueix. But I forgot I was out this morning for a few miles.

    Nearly got there when the battery died :cry::cry: Only a 8 mile ride back on my own steam :cry-smile:

    Well the battery is nearly 3 years old now so may be getting a bit long in the tooth. Bit like me.

    The only good thing is that Mrs Jinks wasn't with me. My ears would have been roasted:Rofl1:

    Battery bikes are also a Godsend for people who are unfortunate enough to suffer disabilities that prevent normal useage of their legs, battery bikes give them the opportunity to experience riding around places in the countryside they would otherwise not be able to see.
    Enough said!!:RollEyes:

    Yes we are. It is a pretty site with lovely big pitches.

    I would think it is a bit quieter now than it was in August :thumb:
