In a bid to become environmentally friendly and more responsive to clients who live a little further away from Shrewsbury town centre, I am now mobile (weather permitting) thanks to my new E-Rider 15 electric bike.
The E-Rider 15 is an electrically assisted pedal cycle (EAPC), although it is designed to look like a moped. It has the same legal entitlements and restrictions as a normal bicycle and can be ridden on roads, cycle lanes, bus lanes and footways.
As well as requiring no fuel, the E-Rider 15 requires no road tax, no M.O.T., no insurance, no license plate and I don't even have to wear a helmet.
It's brilliant - it's just twist and go.
So if you see PC Mike on a bike in your street or neighbourhood, give me a call straight away - there'll be no call out charge and I'll pop round as soon as I've finished my current job.
A huge thank you to the hugely talented caricature artist and stone mason Karl Bradburn for producing his 'Host Rider' artwork, inspired by the PC Mike On A Bike concept. Karl specialises in designing non-exaggerated caricatures developing a particular aspect of his subjects. For just £40, you can commission Karl to personify you - contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
