Electric bike rides can now be enjoyed around the New Forest and Salisbury area - they're fully escorted and great fun!
Today I was lucky enough to head off on an escorted electric bike ride for 2 hours for my Likie Bikie experience. I chose the 2 Hour Explorer Ride.
I thoroughly enjoyed it!
We travelled easily along quiet lanes past beautiful thatched cottages, slipped into tranquil forest glades where deer were the only other living creatures we saw, and travelled along beautiful New Forest heathland and woodland.
Then we finished at the pub!
What could be better?
The electric bikes are easy to manoeuvre (if I can do it so can you;-) and made the whole trip a really great experience.
As you can see from the photos the electric bikes are great (and so are the fat tyres)! The 2 hour Explorer Ride wasn't a challenge for the bikes, even on some of the hills.
The views were great as you can see from the Castle Hill vista across the Avon Valley.
Am I happy to recommend Likie Bikie? Absolutely!
All these escorted rides include hire of the electric bike plus helmet.
And a pub stop? - doesn't get much better than that! (You buy your own drinks)
I tried the 2 hour Explorer Ride and really enjoyed the experience. I think you'll enjoy the 4 hour Salisbury Loop Ride which takes you on paths and routes you will never discover normally and the 4 hour New Forest Ride also has loads of new experiences for you too. You have to have a level of stamina and confidence for the 4 hour rides but David will talk you through it before you book.
