1000+ riders safely introduced, assessed and or trained personally on ebikes by electricmeg in the last 12 months

Wow, thats a number I am proud of. With all cycling activity there is an acknowledged risk. Understanding the equipment and understanding the rider wishing to partake in the experience is a risk best calculated by experienced instructors. You mininise that risk by having a NZQA qualified and experienced instructor–who delivers to a nationally recognised cycle safety standard–on hand assessing and training. Meg from electricmeg is also an NZQA Cycle Safety Assessor, has years of cycle safety training and a large number of observational hours of hands on learnings to draw experience from. This level of experience is not something that can be learnt quickly. Her team of instructors are all similarly qualified and experienced. Keeping participants safe during assessing and training is paramount but we can still have fun while we are doing it. Electricgrin (TM) induced result.

Working with corporate clients, local councils and a government agency has meant plenty of national travel over the last 2 months.

The ebike competency assessment and training program supporting sound Health and Safety practice has proved to be regionally adaptable and flexible. Electricmeg has the agility to be quick in response and the key is the ability to tailor the program for specific needs. Being able to offer improvement pathways for those not yet skilled enough to use the work fleet bikes demonstrates our commitment to getting everyone ready to safely join in on the ride. Working with the organisations experienced cyclists as voluntary Cycle Champions or Super Cyclists has shown that with collaboration much can be achieved in a short space of time.  For the Cycle Champs our training time together has provided a focussed and fun ebike hands on experiences which demonstrates why ebikes are similar but uniquely different to their pushbikes. Experiencing how the power, increased weight and speed differentials affect how they ride combined with best practice on road learnings has been acknowledged as invaluable.  For the Cycle Champs who already demonstrate a good level of cycle safety knowledge its been more of a conversation style learning and a good reminder of what they can do to further enhance their on road safety and maybe unlearn a few of the bad habits they have adopted along the way.
