The Camcycle Hustings event was the venue for the first showing of the new electric bike due to go on sale at the Cambridge Electric Transport Company which is owned by Peter Dawe, the independent candidate in the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Mayoral Election.
“It’s going to be £700,” said Dawe at the event, adding that at the current time he is looking to add a range of 3 and 4-wheel veto bikes to the mix of electric cycle options as part of a ‘Peter’s Pedals’ fleet available in the region.
Cambridge Electric Transport Company CEO Sean Moroney said that he first saw the Peter’s Pedal e-bike at the recent London Bike Show.
“It’s made in China,” Moroney said, “and has a range of 30 miles, with three gear options.”
The mayoral election takes place on May 4. Dawe has campaigned on getting more people to buy into electric transport options to solve Cambridge’s transport issues, and Peter’s Pedals is now being rolled out to add to the ranges already available – the price point being the key factor here, as current options are usually priced from around £1,000.
Peter Dawe is a millionaire businessman who made his money by providing internet delivery services in the very early days of the technology.
