Electric Bikes at Grizedale

Electric Bikes at Grizedale

Having Fun with the electric bikes. Explore further, do more and enjoy the hills with an electric bike!


Fancy exploring the Lake District in a different way? Electric bikes are the way to try. Suitable for anyone over the age of 14 years old, they are fantastic for going further distances, for getting in more downhills, or for giving you a little help up those hills. We highly recommend an electric bike for anyone thinking of hiring a trailer or tag-a-long, as it makes your ride so much more fun! But don't be fooled into thinking this is cheating - you still pedal, and can alter the amount of assistance the bike gives you all through the ride.
We have a range of electric bikes for you to try, from brands such as Scott and Specialized. We have hardtails and full suspensions, so you can explore all the forest has to offer.
