Welcome to the UK Electric Bike Centre. We offer a unique experience viewing Kent and East Sussex on an electric bike.
There are many reasons to ride an electric bike. They are perfect for groups - using the different power levels everyone can travel at the same speed. An electric bike gives you the best of both worlds. You can have the great outdoors and the sun on your face but you can also have a bit of help in the legs department.
We have carefully designed a number of routes along peaceful backroads which take you deep in to the Kent countryside, passing villages, woodlands, vineyards, breweries and smallholdings. This area of Kent enjoys a number of historic castles and famous gardens which you can visit and we can advise you on a suitable route to reach the places that interest you. We have maps showing you the best routes on the quietest country lanes, wherever possible. We also have bike phone holders if you prefer to navigate the modern way.
We can advise you where to stop for refreshments during your trip and we are happy to recommend a number of local pubs.
One of our most popular trips is visiting local vineyards and tasting award winning wines. We are lucky to have a number of superb vineyards on our doorstep here in the south east.
Our main shop is based at Bloomsburys Biddenden, in the centre of Kent; our location is ideal for exploring the beautiful Weald of Kent countryside. In 2017 we opened a second site at The Hub, Quarry Farm in Bodiam, East Sussex. From here you can explore the pretty lanes of East Sussex.
Our electric bikes are comfortable and reliable and have an large battery range, plenty of power to keep going all day. If you have never used an electric bike before, it's very easy; you use it exactly the same way as a pedal bike. The difference is that when you pedal, the motor kicks in to assist you, great for any hills. Alternatively you can switch the motor off and ride it like a conventional bike. Our bikes have 5 power levels, so they cater for all levels of expertise.
In 2016, Trip Advisor gave us a certificate of excellence so do see our reviews. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g503896-d5064047-Reviews-UK_Electric_Bike_Tours-Biddenden_Kent_England.htmlView Tours
