Are eBikes safe to ride?

Our eBikes are regularly maintained by a trained member of staff and checked every time they go out. We also encourage road safety and riding in low and non-traffic routes wherever possible. We can recommend routes that give you plenty to see and enjoy, whilst avoiding major roads and busy places. Shropshire really is blessed with lots of quieter roads and cycle paths, and this is growing all the time. And we even provide a link to the highway code to brush up on cycle laws in our booking confirmation info for anyone who hasn’t been out for a while.
