My Assist Hybrid Electric Bike from Halfords

My Assist Hybrid Electric Bike from Halfords

Assist Hybrid Electric Bike - 20" Wheel

The Assist Hybrid Electric Bike - 20" Wheel is the perfect commuting companion. With just one turn on the pedals you will be able to ride up hills and against the strongest winds, like they didn’t even exist. The bike has a 12 point pick up that means the motor is more sensitive to the turn of the pedals and will kick the power in quicker. Depending on the terrain and the rider’s weight you can travel up to 20 miles on one charge and only charge back up in 2-3 hours. Also, there is a walking mode feature that will help you push the bike up a path or if its fully loaded with shopping. When it comes to hop on hop off city traveling, the Assist is the perfect bike.

BCC Easter Meet, Rally

BCC Easter Meet Rally

Well this is my second weekend away and it was a great success apart from leisure battery dying so I've decided to fit LEDs to extend the life of my battery. Looking forward to meeting up with them all again.

Whilst travelling home I gave way to oncoming traffic as I was on a single-track road and as a result I got stuck my front driver's side wheel just kept spinning luckily I had some grip mats but it just shows how easily a motorhome can become stuck.

My Beginners Vlogging Guide Using a Samsung S9

My beginners vlogging guide using a Samsung s9 will also work with s8 and s7.

What Vlog Means
Vlog comes from video blog or video log and refers to a type of blog where almost all of the content is in video form.

Vlog posts consist of making a video about yourself or an event and uploading them to the internet, and publishing it within a post on your blog.

What Vlogging Means
In the early days of blogging, vlogs were called podcasts, a term that was used to refer to both sound and video blog posts. Nowadays the two have assumed their own name.

The term vlog is also used by video streamers who don't use a blog but post regular updates thru other means like YouTube their profile often publicises them as vloggers. Nevertheless, live broadcasts are available too, from internet sites like YouTube and Facebook, and those are also considered vlogs.
