EBike rental from Rockley Park

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?
You do not need to have used an ebike before and full-instruction will be provided by our team.

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.

Choice of Self-guided Tours – Included in your ebike rental.

We have been cycling around Poole for 25 years and we have found the very best routes to follow.   Bring your smartphone and we will provide you with a choice of self-guided tours around the area.   You can easily mount your phone on one of our special handlebar phone mounts and our sat nav app will give you turn by turn directions so you get to see the very best bits of Poole. (Don’t worry if you are not a fan of technology you can also have a paper map!)
