Despite the soaking we all received at last year's event the Tour de Presteigne is back. It's not only back, it's bigger and better due to the enthusiastic participation of Green Wheels and The Presteigne Eco Weekend.
The event will take place over 2 days this year giving everybody lots of time to get involved with all the activities, try out the electric bikes and talk about alternative transport ideas until they are blue in the face.
This year's Rally is aimed not just at amateur electric bike enthusiasts and those wishing to purchase an electric bike but also everybody who is unhappy about their gas guzzler and is looking for alternatives. We intend to feature displays of electric and hybrid cars, scooters and motorbikes as well as recumbent bicycles and trikes. We will also be inviting exhibitors of many different fuel sources including Bio fuels and Hydrogen Fuel Cells as well as bus companies, car sharing schemes, local cycling groups, and walkers.
