Cycle country lanes, scenic routes, steep hills and lake-side in peace and serenity without getting out of breath or hot and sweaty!
You don’t need to worry about having to recharge your battery – you will get up to 50 miles on one charge and if you need more simple plug in at any electric socket. Easy.
Electric bike hire is easy with our fleet of e-Bikes from quality manufactures including Riese and Muller, Scott and Bergamont.
These bikes feature state of the art technology and are a great choice for bicycle travellers who need to go further.
Whatever you need it for, we have premium e-Bikes in a range of locations across the UK.
Are you afraid of that steep hill? You think the mileage is too much for you? Although you still have to pedal the e-Bike drive provides a nice boost for your efforts. They go up to 15mph and are a solid help on the climbs to increase your average speed. Pedal assist bikes give you a constant nudge on your ride and conform to your pedal cadence and torque. When your pedal pressure increases to get up a hill so does the amount of power the motor outputs. Less effort on your part translates to less power assist.
These bikes come with gears that operate in the same way as a regular hybrid bike. They feature an 11-speed drivetrain with gear ratios that are very similar to what you’d find on a mountain bike, which means you have a great range for climbing.
Operating range depends on many factors such as the assistance level, gear changing behaviour, route profile, headwind and temperature, but in general, the average range of our battery packs is up to around 60 miles.
If you don’t already own an e-Bike, touring may also serve as an ideal introduction to the world of the electric bike. What better way to try out an electric bike than to enjoy some of UK’s best scenery at the same time? Whether you want to be able to visit areas that a car can’t reach, travel further to see more, or just experience the exhilaration a hill-top view offers but without needing to sit down first, then an e-Bike hire offers a completely different experience to the car.
Riding an electric bike is easy and we will offer you instruction when you arrive.
All e-Bikes are pedal assist. You always have to pedal to get assistance. e-Bikes no longer have a throttle, they are illegal and are classed as mopeds. e-Bikes are limited to 15.5mph in the UK
There are two types of motors. Mid drive (bottom bracket, where the pedals are) and Hub (center of the wheel). In the UK they are limited to 250 watts of average, continuous, power, eg they can peak higher. Their tangible power is defined by torque in newton meters. It’s the acceleration and hill climbing ability.
Mid drive vs Hub:
At 250w you’ll get more power from a mid drive. They are more efficient (eg range), they can disengage for no resistance without the motor. Weight is low and central eg stable. Mid drives are made by reputable brands eg Bosch, Shimano, Brose.
Modern hub drive motors are typically lighter so more suited for folding bikes that frequently need to be lifted.
Our premium e-Bikes offer intuitive controls, integrated lights, fenders and racks and an overall beautiful aesthetic. Shop high quality, Swiss and German engineered e-Bikes.
