E-Bike Experience Rides
Helping you make the right choice
We know that choosing the right electric mountain bike (eMTB) can be frustrating. A quick test ride outside the bike shop on one or two demo models may leave you with more questions than answers. Our guided experience rides take away the guesswork, you’ll ride a range of eMTBs offering e-systems from Bosch and Shimano with different drive, battery and display options, hard-tail and full-suspension, 29er and 650b/27.5in.
Where we ride
The best place to try out eMTBs is on the trails – our guided E-Bike Experience ride takes place at Swinley Forest (near Bracknell, Berkshire) easily accessed from the M3 (junction 3) and the M4 (junction 10). We ride the 10km ‘blue’ mountain bike trail, rated as moderate and aimed at intermediate cyclists and mountain bikers.
With you all the way
Our friendly experts will be on hand with helpful advice and guidance throughout the ride.

You’ll need to book with us in advance. Dates and times are tailored to the needs of each group but we prefer to stick to weekdays when the trails aren’t so busy. We ride as a group of 6 (5+1 guide) with each rider having the opportunity try each of 6 different eMTBs which are swapped among the group during the ride. The duration of the ride is approx 1 hour depending on the experience level of the group with complimentary refreshments afterwards at the Look Out coffee shop.
The cost is £50 per person which you will get back as a discount should you decide to purchase any ebike from us.
The aim of our E-Bike Experience ride is for you to be able to try out a range of eMTBs in the proper environment with helpful advice on hand. It’s not a technical challenge – you certainly don’t need to be a hardcore MTBer – just comfortable riding on trails. You are under absolutely no obligation to buy from us and there’s no sales pressure at all – the pace and the mood is relaxed and fun with the focus on you getting the most from our E-Bike Experience.
