There has been a surge in interest in the outdoors during the Covid pandemic, prompting a pair of cycling enthusiasts to breath new life into old, discardedhttps://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-55533981
Beth Ward and Robin Hughes are turning unwanted bikes into electric powered cycles in Denbighshire.
They hope it will help encourage new riders to get fitter, for a fraction of the cost of a new e-bike.
The pair have now been hailed as “low carbon heroes” by the Welsh Government.
The two have set out to convert as many bikes as they can under the umbrella of their social enterprise business, called Drosi Bikes in Ruthin.
A play on the Welsh word trosi, for convert, the pair will even carry out the e-bike conversions at cost price – all people have to do is supply the bike.
Their inspiration was a four-month cycling holiday in Turkey.
