Unique cycling tours around the Yorkshire Dales, launched by electric bike specialists, e-bikehire.com, are gearing up to give leisure bikers a taster of the Tour de France route.
The company, the only one of its kind in the North of England, offers guided cycling tours and self-hire products to take the hard work out of a two-wheeled ride through some of the UK’s most spectacular locations.
Electric power will make cycling a breeze across the Yorkshire Dales National Park, including Kilnsey, near Grassington, part of the Tour de France Grand Départ route planned for July 2014.
e-bikehire.com owners Lee Robinson and Ian Morton say the electric bike concept has wide appeal for today’s leisure travellers, making a cycling holiday an attractive option for adults of all levels of fitness.
Lee Robinson commented: “There’s great excitement about the famous Tour de France coming to Yorkshire and we are making it easy for even non-cyclists to experience the highs and lows of biking through the Dales. Our electric bikes are perfect for people who want the buzz of cycling through open countryside but perhaps don’t have the skills or strength for a traditional pedal bike.
“Our service is built on convenience, quality and comfort and our clients very soon acquire an ‘e-bike smile’ as our road-tested tour bikes take the strain out of tackling the rolling dales countryside.”
Transport costs for e-bike riders are estimated to be between 3-7p to travel 30-40 miles. Self-hire charges are £36 a day, £24 for half a day and hourly hire is £10. Guided tours cost £48 per person.
