Our scooter style ‘Rad Runner’ ebikes are really easy to handle and are perfectly suited to exploring the trail ways and bike paths of Poole.


Explore the local area around Rockley Park, there are so many great places to go within easy reach or Rockley Park especially if you are on an Ebike. Our choice of self-guided tours take you around some of the most beautiful local sites from Upton Country Park with its wooded trailways that fringe the harbour to historic Poole Quay.  You could choose to take your ebikes to the white Sandy beaches of Sandbanks or inland to the market town of Wimborne Minster. All these amazing sites are within easy reach thanks to the power of the Ebike and the network of cycle paths all around Poole.

Who can rent an eBike?

In the UK ebikes cannot be driven by children under the age of 14. We use ebikes that can take pillion passengers and children’s bike seats so that the whole family can join in exploring the local area without having to worry about parking. There is no extra charge for pillion passengers and a small charge to rent a child’s bike seat that will be pre-fitted to the back of the bike.
