The UK is an incredible country and boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. What better way to get out there and enjoy the views than from the seat of an electric bicycle?
If you are a lover of the outdoors but feel you just don’t get to see enough of it. An e-bike could be just what you need to get there and start taking in some the amazing landscapes here in the UK! Electric bicycles allow you to simply sit back (maybe not literally!), relax and enjoy the ride. Here’s our top five routes to inspire you…
Purbeck Ride, Dorset
Located in the south of England, this 47 mile route features magnificent coastal scenery which is best enjoyed on a lovely summer’s day. As well as natural beauty, the track also takes you past a handful of historic sites including Corfe Castle, which famously survived the English Civil War. While the 47 miles might have push bike peddlers huffing and puffing all the way, doing this ride with electric assistance will ensure that the only thing taking your breath away is the stunning scenery and fascinating historical landmarks!
St Andrews, Fife
Those with a love for Scottish charm will be swept away by what is more commonly known as the ‘East Neuk’ route. Ringing in at 37 miles, this trail circles Fife’s eastern peninsular and passes through picturesque fishing villages and natural harbours. While there are a few hills to tackle as the route heads inland, an electric bike will see you powering up them without even breaking a sweat.
Penmaenpool, North Wales
This 22 mile Mawddach Trail Circular Cycle Ride weaves through the back roads of Dolgellau and Barmouth. The ride is quite steep at times yet rewards cyclists with incredible views over the countryside. Feasting your eyes on the world famous North Wales scenery is your reward en-route. It’s a trail that has many coming back time after time and you’ll soon see why.
While this 32 mile Grand Tour of Pendle may be a little daunting for the average push biker, those peddling with electric assistance will be able to take it on without a second thought. Featuring quiet country roads, sprawling moorlands and a series of steep undulating hills, it’s a British bicycle trail at its best.
Kennet and Avon Canal
Celebrated as Britain’s most beloved waterside cycle route, the Kennet and Avon Canal snakes through gorgeous scenery and quaint country villages. While most people choose to take the moderately challenging 27 mile route between Marsh Benham and Reading, those straddling electric bikes will be able to take on the full 100 miles from Bristol to Reading and still be left with time for a pint at one of the town’s many pubs.
With five great rides to whet your appetite, it’s time to get out there and start making the most of your peddle power!
It’s so predictable it has almost become a British tradition. Right when we're recovering from the excesses of Christmas…
