Peugeot’s Crossover ebikes ride urban roads and weekend trail adventures

Peugeot has released a bunch of new electric crossovers, but they’re not SUVs. The Crossover ebikes are built for road and trail, feature Bosch motors, per charge battery range of 110 km, grippy thick tires, and either front or full suspension.

The French lion has quite a history in bicycle manufacture, mass producing its first Penny Farthing model in 1886, chopping off its bike division into its own entity in 1926, clocking up 500 models by the mid 1970s, adding a world record speed of 212 km/h to its trophy cabinet in 1998, and introducing its first ebike in late 2009.

The latest additions to the electric-assist portfolio are the eT01 Crossover D9, D10 and FS models. The D9 can be had with a small, medium or large 6061 T6 hydroformed aluminum stepover or mid-step frame – or Sport and Mixt, as Peugeot calls them – and doesn’t come with

As London struggles to regain its mojo, Treehouse is blazing the trail for hotels in the city

Treehouse hotel, London
Treehouse hotel, London

I felt a twinge of apprehension as I walked towards Treehouse in London for my first hotel stay since lockdown. Not because I was afraid of catching coronavirus, more because the thought that hotels, like the high street, would be condemned to a drab and depressing “new normal” had filled me with dread for weeks.

Treehouse, a relatively new hangout that opened in September last year, is just off a stretch of Marylebone that is usually heaving with students from the London College of Fashion, and BBC staffers nipping into Pret A Manger. But on this blistering summer’s day it was chillingly deserted, save for a few workmen digging up part of the road.

When I stepped into the ground-floor café – which, for the time being, doubles up as the check-in desk – it was as if I was both entering the post-millennial era and going

GOALS Adventure Racing Association: adventure racing, mountain biking, orienteering, trail running, navigation, survival skills training, clinics and races

The region’s premier adventure racing organization ~ producing quality events since 2003

Dear Adventure Racing Friends and Family,

 

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to postpone our 2020 race series. As many in our adventure racing community know, on Febrary 26 GOALS  founder,
President, and my husband Bill passed away suddenly. Together Bill and I founded GOALS in 2003, and have run it side by side ever since – 16 years of race organizing, forming a  nationally
recognized racing team, and exposing thousands of people to this great sport. Bill loved this sport and the outdoors with an enthusiastic passion, and GOALS turned that passion into something
tangible he shared with everyone who touched his life. 

 

This decision was not made lightly, but it is the best decision for the organization and my family at this time. We consider many of you our adventure racing family,
