    Had my first flat battery the other day. Not too many miles but very hilly & carrying full load. Got to within half a mile of home. The flat bits were ok but had to push it up the hills. Now I've become a bit paranoid - bit like PPP (post puncture paranoia)

    If you've got an hour to spare and you have an interest in infra, this is a good film. Nice cinematography too https://vimeo.com/pathmark/review/428222­393/f69754e83a

    Sounds like a great idea to me. At the risk of starting an "ianfest" you can count me in too

    I've often thought a 20mph e-bike speed limit would be nice but after reading some of the comments above, perhaps 15.5 is sensible. Also, I reckon I'd be running the battery down sooner - most of my journeys are 5 - 10 miles & I keep it on full power (mostly a heavy load & plenty of hills) & if I don't get a chance to re-charge during the working day, I'm often running on 1/5th charge by the time I get home.

    Yes, I've only ridden my cargo bike in N.London. I don't filter anymore, even if there's loads of room as it just seems to antagonist motorists. Rarely a week goes by when I don't report a close pass - today's one was a van overtaking while I was turning right ffs
