VOLT STORIES – ALI THE FISHERMAN – A FILM BY AR EATWELL & LYLE METCALFE
In loving memory of Alasdair Macleod. VOLT™ Stories is a new series of videos VOLT Electric Bicycles made to that share some unique and surprising ways their customers use their ebikes. This story shows Alasdair Macleod, a local fisherman from Applecross on the northwest coast of the Scottish Highlands. The area’s mountains and coastlines are among the UK’s most idyllic sights. Featured on BBC News, Applecross is one of the first communities to power all local homes and businesses directly from its hydro scheme in hopes of becoming energy self-sufficient. To reduce his own carbon footprint, Alasdair made the switch to a VOLT™ Alpine and a CARRY FREEDOM Y Trailer to deliver his catch around the village. Soon enough, the e-bike became central to his day-to-day routine. His rear wheel is wobbling a bit on the trailer!

Going by bike from the southern part of Austria to the Mediterranean Sea and to places like Liguria and Sardinia was the first part of this adventure. Another crucial goal was to catch up with local people, to immerse deeper into the local culture, and to find waves in a country which is not that famous for surfing.
