Tom & Una let us know on their Ride Electric experience...
After a great deal of research into e bikes I made contact with Craig at Ride Electric in North Shields and arranged a test ride. It was a great experience and after a friendly chat with the very knowledgeable Craig, I was convinced that I wanted an e bike.
His friendly advice and no-pressure salesmanship was first-rate and shortly afterwards I arranged for my wife to have a test ride. She too was immediately taken with the experience and we very quickly ordered two Bergamont E-Horizon models.
Delivery and service were excellent and we could not wait to give them a full test with a 25-mile ride around the River Tyne. As older experienced cyclists we soon found that our new e-bikes brought a new dimension to cycling and they have definitely given us a new enthusiasm for enjoying pedalling together.
The big test came with a recent visit to the Lake District where we tackled a challenging 36-mile circular route around Blencathra and Skiddaw and found the performance of the bikes faultless.
Transporting them by car was simple. With a quick removal of the front wheel and turning the handlebars flat, they fit easily into our Audi Q3 with plenty of room left for luggage. For security, we have invested in two excellent Kryptonite shackle locks. Not cheap, not light but very effective.
We can certainly recommend Ride Electric to anyone thinking of trying, buying or hiring an e bike. Go electric, go further, go longer and keep on cycling with a little help from your new e-friend!
