The Bike Shed Motorcycle Club has revealed its new motorcycle-only electric charging point – and it’s the first of its kind in the UK.
Based at The Bike Shed’s Shoreditch HQ in London, the 7kW EO Mini Charger is free for all motorcycle-riding customers to use during opening hours. Installed by EO Charging, the 7KW Mini Charger is described as ‘the smallest fast charger on the market.’
Speaking about the new EV charger, Bike Shed founder Dutch van Someren said: “At the Bike Shed, we welcome everyone through our doors, whether bikers or non-bikers, petrol heads or electric riders. As the first venue in the UK to offer a charging station just for electric motorcycles, we hope to re-emphasise our inclusive approach. We look forward to seeing more electric motorcyclists at our venue and we encourage anyone with an interest in the biking scene to come and visit us at our Shoreditch home.”
EO Charging’s head of marketing Miles Freeman said: “Electric cars have hogged the media limelight for the last few years, but now it’s time for electric motorcycles to take centre stage. There’s now a broad selection of models available that offer vastly improved range and earth-shattering torque. We believe that, for electric motorcycles to succeed, it’s important that chargers are not only installed in key urban areas but also on the UK’s best riding roads. Electric adventures will soon be best served on two wheels!”
