Collect Bikes, Portobello Road

The day of reckoning is almost upon us! Mark was up at the crack of dawn , as usual,  completing some final “jobs” on Bruce. He successfully changed our gas system to the GASLOW system allowing us to conveniently top-up with gas at many petrol stations (like LPG in your car) rather than wait for the gas to run out then swap the bottle. Each country has different gas bottles !!

Next, we head off the the famous Portobello Road, London to collect our super sonic electric bikes from Just-e-Bikes. Almost the centre of London!! Click HERE .

They look amazing so now we need to confirm this with a road test.!!!_ _ _ _ . . . mmmm, we feel confident . . . . . why not visit the Queen!! So we head off to Windsor Castle with our shiny bikes sitting comfortably on the back of “Bruce”!! We excitedly unload them in the castle car park & whoosh. . . we are blips in the distance. Sun and blue skies surprise us as we enjoy the beautiful surrounds of Windsor and Eton. The bikes live up to our expectations & we have a great afternoon particularly flying up the hill next to the castle passing the crowd of tourists!!
