Colm Boyle, e-Cycles Centre

It was in Barcelona that I came across my first electric bicycle. Ridden by an ex pat he stopped for a chat and let me have a go. After a quick ride along the beautiful sea front and up La Ramblas, I was hooked.

So, e-Cycles Centre was born. A shop dedicated to the sales and maintenance of electric bicycles. Wimborne Road in Moordown was the obvious choice for the shop. A bustling street with plenty of parking and quiet streets for test rides.

The bikes have come a long way since my ride in Barcelona. Much lighter more powerful with a range of over 100 miles. All bikes are available for demo rides. No appointment is necessary. Everyone who has a test ride comes back with a huge smile and no wonder. Riding up hills like Sea Road, Constitution Hill or the Alder Hills is effortless. Use the power as much or as little as you want.

Exercise and environmentally friendly, what a combination and less than 10pence to fully recharge the battery.

A range of step throughs, cross bars and foldables are available. I was riding through Moordown recently on a beautiful sunny day and I thought, who needs Barcelona.

I am open 10am to 4pm, Tuesday to Saturday, but will adjust these times to suit any customer.
