Local MP, Sarah Newton recently visited Top Gear in Penryn to discuss the latest changes to the Cycle to Work Scheme with Peter Williams.
Top Gear, Cornwall's largest electric bike specialists, have recently moved to new premises in Penryn and have more than fifteen years experience selling and maintaining electric bikes.
Following her visit, Sarah commented: “I am delighted that the Government listened to my calls and those of cycling campaigners to widen access to this popular scheme. As Cornwall is so hilly, it can put many people off cycling, but with electric bikes now part of the scheme, I hope many more local employers will promote this scheme and as a result more people will take it up.
Cycling and walking to work is a good way for us all to do our bit for the environment, reducing congestion and emissions and improving our health and wellbeing.
Peter and his staff have many years of experience, offer friendly advice and a wide range of bikes, so I hope more people will pop along and consider an electric bike as an alternative to driving.”
