I believe that I have today set a new Real World Range Record on the Vectux.
To the best of my knowledge the highest reported range so far had been 81.95km by Buzby.
The Vectux managed to get to 82.7km today. Don't confuse that with useful range, though.
The last few km it was literally crawling, but got there without pushing or feet on the ground.
I have used the best local spot within battery range for the ride and chose a day with favorable conditions.
But the result should be able to be beaten, because of significant undulations in the terrain and a pay load of 111kg, including disk lock, 30m 15A extension lead, RCD, ABCool, water, chocolate and my usual backpack full of gizmo's!
