Regular readers will know that I’ve had a slight difficulty using a bike such as the Triumph Scrambler for my Sausage King Adventures. Beautiful though the bike is I do worry about the carbon footprint of any journeys I make. I went back to using the Honda CG125 because this offered up to twice the MPG of the other bike. But it certainly lacks the appeal of a British classic like the Triumph.
I’ve gone one step further and started building up my distances on my pushbike so I can take the carbon footprint down another notch. I am planning a visit to De-Lish in Wells-Next-The-Sea which will be entirely done on my pushbike. It’s over 100 miles round trip so not an entirely practical solution for all the visits I want to make.
Could a Renault Twizy be the answer? Developed by our neighbours in France the Twizy is a two seater, fun electric vehicle capable of 47mph. It does about 60 miles between charges, up to 70 miles at a pinch. I could easily find a sausage maker every 60 miles and I’m sure if I asked nicely they might let me plug in!
