Electric bikes pioneered by Woodford Green businessman
A FORMER stockbroker from Woodford Green is pioneering the use of electric bikes.
David Farr, 30, gave up his job in London in April to pursue this niche market, and has never looked back.
“Commuting on the underground put me off working in the City,” he said.
“I heard reports that cattle would not be subjected to temperatures on the Tube during the summer.
“That’s why I started looking into electric bikes.

“You don’t have to tire yourself out getting to work, and you’re fresh and ready to face the day.”
Mr Farr is director of Nip Nip, a fledgling company that sells a range of bikes, not only aimed at giving disabled people greater freedom over transport, but also to give an incentive for people to get into cycling, whatever their ability.

“The bikes are an excellent option for carbon-conscious companies that want to reduce emissions and at the same time reduce fuel bills, and for people who want to use them to commute to work.”
Nip Nip, High Road, Woodford Green, features as one of the suppliers for the Disability Living Foundation, a charity which provides advice on mobility aids. It plans to invite all Recorder readers for a guided cycle around Epping Forest in March.
