The recently-opened Alderley Road branch of The Electric Bike Shop has brought unparalleled e-bike expertise and customer service to Wilmslow. Well-known stalwarts of the bike trade like Cube and Raleigh are represented alongside innovative electric bike specialists including Gocycle and Haibike.
Whether you're interested in covering some distance cross-country, commuting traffic free, finding a more convenient way of getting your local shopping done or even taking the kids to school, every discipline is covered in the store's range. Head over for a visit and you'll soon discover that an electric bicycle is more than just a push bike with some assistance – it's a totally new tool that can open up a heap of possibilities.
When it comes to getting from A to B, the addition of a pedal-assist motor can make a journey that may not have been practical by bike into an absolute breeze. Arrive at your destination unflustered and dressed for the occasion – no parking, no problem. On the other side of the coin, ride a distance that would previously have simply taken too long on a traditional push bike. Trips around town to pick up heavier items no longer require contributing to local congestion and air pollution – an ebike motor will still happily whizz along even when hauling the weekly shop. Out on the path less travelled, the scope to explore is broadened enormously with an off-road ebike. Keep up with a more enthusiastic group, winch up inclines without breaking a sweat and keep riding for much longer than might be possible on leg power alone!
The Electric Bike Shop is the leading electric bike specialist in the UK, and on the back of a reputation for unrivalled knowledge and service is growing quickly. From humble beginnings in a cosy Bristol store back in 2017, The Electric Bike Shop now boasts 6 stores around the country with a further 9 planned to open over the course of the next 18 months.
When visiting the Wilmslow branch you are greeted by a wide range of electric bikes on the shop floor, covering every aspect of commuting and leisure riding. If you're new to electric bikes or cycling in general, fear not – friendly staff are on hand to discuss the features and benefits of each model. If you're not sure what sort of riding you're likely to be doing, the team will be able to talk the options through and make recommendations to your budget.
Test rides are free, but be warned: once you've had a go, it's difficult to walk away without picking up an ebike of your own!
