‘SILVER CYCLISTS’ ARE ON THE RISE
More and more people over the age of
55 are getting into cycling, thanks to
the increasingly popular e-bike. ‘Silver
cyclists,’ in fact, account for nearly
two thirds of e-bikes sales in the UK,
according to research by Halfords.
And no wonder: the e-bikes have a
built-in battery to help riders on more
difficult hills or terrain. Now all we need
are safer places to cycle: more than a
third of us would cycle more if British
roads had dedicated cycle lanes.
