Electric Bike Tours

We use mainly use Panther Electric Bikes which are extremely stylish and simple to use. Our bikes have a maximum speed of 15.5mph which means that you can cruise along while taking in the wonderful scenery that surrounds you. A great day out for families and friends. Unfortunately cannot cater for families with children under the age of 14 years (please refer to our terms and conditions).

Our aim is to guide tours that will take you off the beaten track along the beautiful coast of Rye Bay and explore the inland countryside. See wildlife  at the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and add a bit of local interest and history too whilst having fun cycling with friends and family.

We offer several tours of just an hour, half day or a full day. We ride dedicated cycle routes, bridleways and country lanes. Occasionally we have to ride a little way on busy roads. On the guided tour you will be accompanied by one of our experienced tour guides who knows our tour routes well. They will also provide any maintenance if required. Self guided tours allows you to explore at your own pace. We will provide maps, helmets, locks, advice and back up.

The great thing about ebikes is you don’t need to have specialist cycling experience. You just need to be able to ride a bike and have a bit of confidence and lots of enthusiasm. You will be surprised that even hills are not daunting anymore, making the experience so much more enjoyable. Once you’ve ridden an electric bike you will never look back
