During the summer, between May and October, we like to organise long electric bike rides out into the countryside on a Sunday afternoon after lunchtime. For our own customers it is a chance to socialise and run up a few more miles on their bikes. For friends and ‘e-curious’ cyclists it is an opportunity to see if an electric bike is for them.
In previous years we have delayed announcing each ride until about 10 days in advance, to try to ensure that the weather would be good for the day. How innocent we were of the British weather!
This summer we will do things a little differently. We will set the dates now so that you can put them into your diaries, and we will carry on unless the forecast is howling hurricanes, torrential rain or snow. Michael Fish says we will be OK…
During the afternoon we will cover up to 30 miles. with a pub stop / snack break half way if possible. This distance should be inside the range of ebikes with a 10Ah battery and remember – you also have pedals!
Ebike Centres customers can join us free with their own bikes. Friends, or anyone interested in joining us, is welcome to rent one of our electric bikes for the day for £20. If you later decide to buy an electric bike we will deduct £20 from the purchase price.
Bookings must be made in advance. If you are an Ebike Centres customer this can be done by replying to our reminder email. Otherwise you can book up to two weeks in advance by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that payment for electric bike rental will be required in advance through our website. For security we will require one copy of photo ID (passport / driving licence: and a credit / debit card verification at the start of the ride for each bike rental.
