Electric Bikes/E-Bikes

A good electric bike will roughly cost you £700+. These bikes are quite expensive for just a normal rider so I would only suggest for people that ride everywhere.

You can reach up to speeds of 20 MPH on your bike (not going down hill)

You will still be able to pedal on the electric bike or you could just have a free ride (not pedaling)

The battery/motor takes roughly 3 1/2 hours – 6 hours to reach full charge.

These E-Bikes are street legal and you don’t need any sort of license to ride them on the street but you have to stay under 20 MPH

These bikes can do up to 40 miles in one charge.

Best Tricks

The tricks that I think are the best are:

Wheelies:

Wheelies are pretty cool and most people are able to do them and you can do them at almost at any time.

Barspins:

Barspins are also call trick because they look that they are hard to master but infact quite easy

And are cool and to add some more difficulty try to do a 180 tailwhip

One-Hander

One-Hander can be really easy to perfect

No-Handers

No-Handers are one step above one-handers and if you really want a challenge try a jump with no-hands.

 

Halford’s Bike Review

Halfords is a great place to buy bikes! They have all kinds of different bikes ranging from mountain bikes to hybrid bikes. All three of us recommend buying bikes at Halfords! i Got my first ever bike there and it was a great introduction to cycling, growing up i was getting more and more bikes. At the moment oi have three bikes these are my Full Suspension Apollo, a Mongoose Bmx R90 and a Carrera Vulcan 2017. My full Suspension has lasted me 4 years and is in great working order. My BMX  is almost 2 years old and is great fun to ride around on. My Carrera is almost 3 months old and is great for every thing, for cruising around town doing bike jumps and Wheelies overall i like my Carrera the most.

Ryan Macaskill :The Ridge

Danny Macaskill is a Scottish mountain bike rider that completes the hardest challenges of all time. On 1st October 2014 he completed the ridge. It was the hardest challenge he had ever completed. The whole way down the mountain it was rocky and there was no clear path or route to go down it was just completed rocks. At one point he climbed up to the highest point with his bike and the must have been only 1m of space. All of the journey there was no mistakes made and if had made a mistake he would have fell down the mountain. One of the coolest tricks he completed was when he rode up to the barbed wire fence at pace and hit the front wheel and he flipped and landed perfectly.
