So I’m 52 this year and wanted to try and keep riding as much of the 30 mile daily commute to work as possible during the week, coupled with training for a charity London 2 Amsterdam cycle in June - and having had an electric bike many moons ago which started me loving the bike - progressing on to a normal road bike and completing a charity London 2 Paris cycle in 2018 wanted to see how technology had moved forward in 8 years - and boy has it moved forward!
So I researched loads across all styles and types and brands - and kept coming back to Ribble.
So in late December 2019 I drove the 2 hours to Bluewater - looked, got measured up and put an order (on hold) whilst I waited for the cycle to work scheme certificate to arrive.
The bike arrived, very well packaged and delivered in January - I went for the CGR AL-e.
Assembly was a piece of cake - handle bars clamped and peddles on - I charged her up and cycled to work the very next day - WoW!
Colleagues at work - all very impressed with the style, and sleekness of the bike and how Stealthy she looks!
I am continually having other cyclists stop and chat - at traffic light stops about how fantastic she looks - and “is it really electric?!”
A real pleasure to ride - VERY solid and excellent fun to ride!
The picture shows her second ride out on a Saturday around my local city.
The threat by my lady to do an 850 K cycle tour in 2020 made me look for a good bike, the suggestion to do this over the Alps from Germany through Austria into Italy made me look for an E-bike. The Ribble CGR-al e was my first (and only) choice. Light, inconspicuous, good priced and great to buy direct from the factory! The expectations were sky high as this was my first ever road bike... Having done my first 150K with it makes has confirmed all the expectations! Let's say it like this: rain, stormy cold whether yet I am jumping at the chance of going out on it. The e-push in the back is so subtle and the bike is so agile and sportive to ride,I am so very happy with my choice. Saw a fellow e-cyclist yesterday on non Ribble e-bike, and felt sorry for him, to big and obvious and no doubt much more expensive to boot!
