Zoom through London in style with Limobikes

Traffic promises to be higher than ever  during the Olympics in London this summer, so plan to zip past in style  with two branded Virgin Limobikes.  After a year long collaboration with it’s sister company, today sees Virgin Limited Edition unveil a branded Necker Island and a Roof Gardens Limobike to get people around London efficiently, safely, and without stress .

Virgin Limobike use Yamaha FJR1300’s (with ABS) which have been fitted with a rear seat back to give passengers total confidence while on the move. They have been fitted with an Autocom intercom and phone so passengers can talk to the rider in transit and even make and receive phone calls!

Virgin Limobike carries approximately 10,000 passengers around London alone each year. With a typical journey time of approximately 35 minutes from the Olympic Park in East London to The Roof Gardens in Kensington, passengers will be able to nip around London in no time!

Passengers will be driven by Virgin Limobike riders Damian Rowley and Russ Marks. Both were trained at the Institute of Advanced Motorcyclists. Damian has been a professional motorcyclist for 18 years and is an ex Motorsport Instructor. He was also a Rider in the World Endurance championship for three consecutive years in 2006, 2007 & 2008! Russ has been a professional motorcyclist for over 20 years and is one of the original riders at Virgin Limobike having joined in 1996, one year after it launched!
