Electric Bike Network
Currently (February 2016) we are reviewing how the Electric Bike Network will run in the future. At the moment bikes are unfortunately not available to hire.
To help you get the best out of this glorious landscape our new fleet of electric bikes, which have the luxury of assisted pedal power, will allow you to experience the sights and sounds of the North Pennines close-up and at your leisure.
Our bikes are comfortable to ride, with step-through frames and soft saddles designed to make your journey through the North Pennines as easy as possible. Whenever you pedal you get a boost from the lightweight motor at the back of the bike. And when you stop pedalling the automatic assistance cuts out so you can freewheel at your leisure.
Batteries last for at least 20 miles but if you do want additional mileage you can always recharge your battery at one of the many pubs and cafes which offer this service for free.
You must be 14 or over to ride an electric bike in the UK.
