Here are 5 of the UK’s best cycle routes, whether conventional or eBike – you can choose where you ride and let your bike do the hard work or put the effort in, bit whatever you decide, you’re guaranteed an unforgettable experience on two wheels…
1 The North Sea Cycle Route
Salt air, eight countries and the trip of a lifetime. Taking in incredible scenery, The North Sea Cycle Route is a challenge that any keen cyclist simply must take. Starting in Dover, the route travels up the east of the UK, passing through Scotland before you travel to The Shetlands and then across to Norway where this epic tour continues along the North Sea, eventually taking in eight countries over 6,200km before returning to Dover. Epic, dramatic and unforgettable, cruise under the power of your eBike or pedal when desired, this is probably the ultimate trek.
2 West Country WayIf you love Cornwall, this is the route for you. The West Country Way is a 252-mile route that goes from Padstow to Bristol, passing Bodmin Moor and Exmoor along the way. Dramatic, unforgettable and breath taking, this is a route where you’ll appreciate and love your eBike even more when you finally reach your destination.
3 Tweed Cycleway, Scottish BordersStaying with a distinctly tartan theme, if you’d rather not leave these shores, how about a 90-mile or so stint from Biggar to Berwick? Stop in a hotel, have a wee dram and soak up the surrounds. This is a largely downhill route, so you can save your battery if you like and freewheel as and when you want! Forests, hills and beautiful surrounds, this is an unforgettable ride you simply must try at some stage.
4 East AngliaIf you love flat landscapes and countryside, this is the route for you. The Fakenham to Harwich route is some 163 miles in length, but an eBike will make it a much easier gig. Pretty much flat all the way, you can cruise or pedal as you glide through some of England’s most beautiful countryside.
5 Hadrian’s Cycleway, CumbriaWe travel back up north for our next suggestion – The Hadrian’s Cycleway, Cumbria. This a cross-country trek that takes you from Ravenglass to South Shields in 174 beautiful, rugged miles. You’ll pass through towns, then pedal for miles without seeing anything as you ride from one coast to another.
