The Extra Mile: Why I choose to ride a RadMini

Find out why professional photographer, Kevin McGarry decided to purchase a RadMini 4.

At Rad Power Bikes we pride ourselves on an unrivaled customer experience, and thoroughly enjoy and appreciate hearing from our happy Rad riders.

One morning when browsing through LinkedIn, I came across a stunning landscape photo with a RadMini nonchalantly placed in the background. Intrigued, I reached out to the talented photographer, Kevin McGarry, to learn more about his experience with this foldable electric fat tyred ebike.

Here’s what Kevin had to share:

 

 

My career started in teaching in Canterbury, Kent and then Cambridge University and  then as a researcher/artist in residence at Emily Carr University in Vancouver, Canada.  Alongside this I was often employed as a freelance photographer, mostly covering sports  events. In these roles I have set up studios in Vancouver, Lisbon and most  recently the Highlands in Scotland. 

 

Whilst in Canada, I met lots of Scots and Canadians who told me more about the beauty of the Scottish Landscapes and I thought “I don’t know my own backyard!” So I bought a camper-van and set it up as a mobile studio. I have been touring with the idea that I would teach myself landscape photography. “Can't be that hard, right?”

 

I have run 49 marathons, PB 2hrs 49mins and cycled across Spain, France, Italy went from Stockholm to Bergen and from Amsterdam to Venice so I was used to having a  bike, but nothing like a Rad Power Bikes ebike.   

 

 

I was looking at getting two electric bikes to do one to one photo tours from a short radius of the nearby hotel I had been photographing. Whilst researching this I came across Rad Power Bikes, and in particular Craig and Aimee ‘Kinging It”, and their camper van ‘Custard’ I saw the RadMini 4 and knew that was the bike for me!  

 

The RadMini 4 has changed my working practice, I have been venturing out further into the area around Glen Etive and Glen Noe as well as Glencoe, on the bike with three cameras, two tripods and a greater sense of adventure. 

 

 

The Rad Mini has been a gift from the creative gods and wonderful for my mental and physical wellbeing during lockdown. It gets a great deal of attention from passes by, and I look forward to continuing my Rad rides well into the Spring and Summer!
