The death of Baroness Thatcher of Kesteven marks closure for a woman who galvanised not only her own generation, but those to come. Loathed and loved with equal passion, Thatcher herself prized one thing more than any other - the success of Britain for all its citizens.

Police boost fleet of electric bikes

The government has ordered 11 electric motorcycles for the police and the Water Supplies Department to promote wider use of the vehicles, which cut fuel costs by half.

The move follows a year-long trial in which police used electric-powered Brammo motorcycles on the streets of Hong Kong. They have now extended the pilot scheme and added 10 more bikes to their fleet.

Bike electrifies market

Increasing traffic density and scarcity of space in major city centres have inspired BMW to design its E-Scooter.

Electric bikes are not new in Hong Kong and the police have tried out Vectrix machines over the past two years, but many models can only carry battery power for short inner-city distances.

Don't lump bicycles with the Segway

I refer to the article about Segway scooters in the South China Morning Post's technology pages ('Segway riders risk driving ban', January 28). Congratulations to the Transport Department for its stance on this vehicle.

As I understand it, anyone can use a Segway on the road, subject to normal motorcycle licensing regulations and adherence to road traffic laws.

Car craze threatens to flood the world bicycle market

The mainland's growing car craze is threatening to cripple the bicycle industry at home and abroad, according to a new report.

The nation's bicycle use dropped from 33 per cent of all trips made in 1995 to 27 per cent in 2000, while annual bicycle sales, which once peaked at 40 million, are now running at between 22 million and 25 million.
