What is an E-Bike?

Simply put, an E-bike is an electric-assisted pedal bicycle. It is a regular bicycle with the addition of an electric motor. The electric motor provides power assistance when the cyclist is pedalling to ease the amount of effort required. The cyclist can choose how much assistance they get.

E-Bikes are road-legal for anyone 14 and over, and speed restricted to 15mph. E-Bikes not only make cycling accessible to people who might otherwise find it difficult, such as the elderly and those with health problems including asthma and muscle soreness, they also make the journey a lot quicker. The battery assist will make going uphill feel more like a gentle downhill, no matter how steep.

We use the latest Neomouv E-Bikes that have a range of around 50 miles, they are upright relaxed bikes that are easy to ride and operate. 1:1 instruction is provided.

Great way to explore with ease and to go to places you wouldn't usually go! Really enjoyed the bikes, excellent spec, very easy to use, with some fantastic routes to chose from. The service was great with a thorough induction so I felt confident when we set off on our own. The recommended app was handy with some good pubs along the way.

Great customer service and fun afternoon! A great way to spend an afternoon in Bath and stress free with the electric boost! Our first time on electric bikes but the team gave us a really clear run through of how they work and what to expect, even took us out on the road to practice and see how the different levels work. We did one of the advised routes through the two tunnels using the app to navigate, which was really easy and pretty foolproof! Would definitely hire them again!

Just do it! I followed an old train line to Bristol which is handily located near the cycle hire shop and had a fantastic afternoon. The e bikes are brand new and the whole experience was made easy by the friendly and knowledgeable staff. I would highly recommend this.

E Bike hire Bath We hired two e bikes for two days at a price of £75 each person. Having hired ebikes from several locations across the country I can confirm this is a very reasonable price. The bikes were in excellent condition and full instructions were given before we set off. Over the following two days we cycled from Bath to Bristol and back along the dedicated traffic free cycle path and then along the Two tunnels circular route which returns to Bath via the Kennet and Avon canal. (Maps provided) I would highly recommend hiring bikes from this company and hope your holiday will be as enjoyable as ours was.

E-Bikes an excellent way to explore Bath and surrounding area Hired E-Bikes for myself, wife and youngest daughter, I am a keen cyclist and have avoided assisted bikes so far. I was surprised at the ease to ride and power for a hybrid bike. It’s an excellent way to explore the surrounding area, there are numerous cycle paths close to the pick up location meaning there’s no need to use the roads which are quite busy. I would recommend Bath City Centre E-Bike hire, induction was excellent as were the bikes, a great day out for both a novice or expert cyclist.

Exploring Bath's Two Tunnels and beyond on Bath City Centre E-Bikes We spent a great day exploring the Two Tunnels circuit on E-bikes hired from the Bath City Centre E-Bike Hire. Both our bikes were in excellent condition and made the ride easy and enjoyable. The team were very helpful in setting us up on the bikes and gave clear instruction on their operation. They are well located in the centre of the City and within easy reach of a suitable route along the river towpath and on to the start of the Two Tunnels.

ebike I needed to go from Bath to Bristol so chose an e-bike rather than a bus or hire car. It was a great experience and the battery helps with the hills. I used the Bath Bristol cycleway, avoid the dual carriageway and cycle through Keynsham. UK cycle network doesn't seem to have been improved in 30 years so take care on the roads as cars are not much cycle aware. The service was fine, the bike was great, it took a little while to figure out the gears/ power balance and obtain a proof of deposit repayment afterwards.

A fantastic day out We rented two E-Bikes for the day and did the 2 Tunnels route (about 12 miles): an excellent day and highly recommended. Nice pub lunch at the half way stop, and a pleasant cafe at the end. Really good induction lesson to E-Bike riding before we set off. A fantastic way to see Bath and the surrounding countryside

Great Experience Brilliant bikes and instructions. Great location starting point. Great cycle routes to go on. We did the two tunnels which was great then along the canal back to the city centre. Small stop off in a cafe near the canal en route. Highly recommend

Great way to tour Bath/Bristol This was our first experience with EBikes and it was quite fun! We rode the bike/hike trail from Bath to Bristol and back. Having that extra power assist was quite nice! The bikes are excellent quality and the staff was very helpful. Give it a go- a great way to tour the town.
