Tell us about yourself.
Although middle-aged, I’d say I’m an open-minded ‘young’ guy. I’m an educated carpenter and civil engineer, and I’m also a writer and a blogger. I’ve always liked to do things my own way, a little bit different than the standard. Learning and experiencing something new each day is my motivation.
What’s your history with cycling?
I’m addicted to bikes and cycling sports since my early youth. I worked as a mechanic as a teenager and as a writer for cycling magazines in my 20s. I’ve also done a lot of racing – triathlons, mountain bike races as well as international long distance tours. I’ve raced in the UK and Prague in the early 90s, and later in Poland and Baltic states. In my mind, a day without cycling is lost.
What’s your experience with Ampler?
It’s a very smooth and gentle ride. Not only is there no ugly, oversized battery pack on the Ampler bike, but it also makes it easy to move the bike without electrical assistance. It’s fun to be on the move with 40, 50 or even 60 kilometers. After I had driven the bike empty, the charging process to the full load took almost exactly 3 hours. The overall concept is convincing.
