North Yorkshire - Electric Bikes and E-Bikes

eBike Hire

WE CURRENTLY HAVE 2 eBIKES FOR HIRE - but this may change!  (see picture).

HIRING AN ELECTRIC BIKE IS AN IDEAL WAY TO DISCOVER THE BENEFITS OF POWER ASSISTED CYCLING AND REALISE WHAT AN ELECTRIC BIKE COULD DO FOR YOU.

IT WILL LET YOU EXPERIENCE THE 'CONCEPT' OF OWNING A QUALITY eBIKE.

 BECAUSE IT IS SO EASY TO GET AROUND ON AN ELECTRIC BIKE

CYCLING BECOMES A PLEASURE!

YOU WILL BE ABLE TO EXPLORE MORE AND TRAVEL MUCH FURTHER.

The Knaresborough, Harrogate & Ripon areas are a delight to cycle around and on an electric bike you’ll be able to go wherever you please. The area has a number of designated cycle routes and has numerous fascinating places to visit. Historic castles, pretty market towns and villages and beautiful countryside to explore.

Our hire bikes (see picture) are comfortable and reliable and should give a 'realistic' range of at least 40 miles (usually much more!). They have 'market-leading' torque sensored, crank drive motors. This means that they respond by 'multiplying' your effort proportionally to different levels depending how hard you pedal, giving a much more natural riding experience (compared to inferior, cheaper, hub motored eBikes). We will be pleased to help you plan your adventure and can advise on the best routes and the likely distance you will be able to travel comfortably in a day on an electric bike.

A favourite route is the Beryl Burton Cycleway which leads from the river in Knaresborough to the recently opened Nidderdale Greenway from Bilton to Ripley (near Harrogate) and runs along a very picturesque disused railway line. Another newer extension takes you down the side of Ripley Castle towards Hampsthwaite ... and more routes are planned. There are numerous refreshment points en-route!

There is also a nice, restricted / low traffic route along the riverside in Knaresborough.

Electric Hire Bikes are collected & dropped-off at our premises by prior arrangement only (local ‘drop-off’ & collection can be arranged at an additional cost. Please contact us for further information).
