We’ve been following the adventures of Canadian David Cameron for almost two years as he tested electric bikes in Barbados. David is back on the island staying in Holetown and he’s going to try to use his electric bike to get to Oistins and back this Friday night.
He needs a charge point at Oistins to top up his bike so he can make it home again. Can anyone help out? He’ll only use 25 cents of electricity and he’d probably be happy to purchase a cutter or a beer if some wonderful person like Marcia will let him plug in to 110VAC.
If anyone can help out, David’s contact info is at the end of the article, or you could put the invitation in the comments section. Here’s his note to us…
David Cameron (CameronEV – Electric Vehicles) is back on the island.
Brought my wife with me and staying in Holetown playing tourist testing the e-bykes. My wife will not ride on her own e-byke at night and rides with me.
I would like to go to Oistins on Fri with her for the nightly fish fry etc.
Problem is 25km there and 25km back with a passenger is pushing the e-byke due to the additional 100+lbs.
I need a charge point in Oistens to refresh the current in the battery. All it takes is a accessible 110VAC outlet I can plug the trickle charger into.
Cost for BLP current would be 25cents from my testing here.
I have charge points on the south coast in Hasting and here in Holetown but nothing arranged in Oistens.
Does BFP have friends in Oistins near the fish market that could be of assistance?
It costing 25cents verses $50 for a taxi or even $2 by bus makes sense and trying that distance (at nite too) is a grand test.
I get from Holetown to Hastings easily and I am faster that the bus. I take 35min, the bus takes 45min.
Any leads would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
