Based in Dunsop Bridge in the heart of the Forest of Bowland, Ribble Valley e-bikes has a fleet of electric bikes available for visitors to hire and explore Bowland straight from the shop.
Our hire shop in the pretty village of Dunsop Bridge is at the heart of the Forest of Bowland and within easy reach of some superb on and off-road routes – and a safe, largely traffic-free bridleway for families to explore.
Within a couple of miles’ riding, you’ll soon discover another benefit of e-bike touring: they make climbing hills a doddle. Both the Forest of Bowland and the Ribble Valley are very hilly, which makes touring on a standard push bike quite a challenge.
If you decide to make a weekend of it, we can arrange delivery e-bikes to your accommodation so you can enjoy a ride direct from the door.
And if you’re looking for the ultimate car-free adventure, we can also arrange two or three-day rentals where we will look after luggage transfer while you cycle from inn to inn.
We will also give you a comprehensive handover and supply a puncture repair outfit, helmets and a full technical back up and recovery service in the unlikely event of breakdowns.
Choose from meandering road rides which incorporate plenty of stops at local points of interest or more challenging off-road routes which get you even closer to nature in some of England’s most breathtaking scenery.
Guided and self-guided tours
We have devised a collection of circular e-bike routes which showcase the best rides and scenery – and local hospitality – in the Forest of Bowland Ribble Valley.
We can provide paper printouts of these routes when you collect your bikes, or alternatively, for more technologically advanced riders, we can supply GPX routes for upload to your smartphone to equip you with ‘cycle satnav’.
For families and larger groups, we can also arrange ‘e-bike safaris’ with an experienced local guide, who will take you to the most amazing beauty spots and viewpoints and provide technical support and advice on getting the most out of your time in the area.

Touring Bowland by e-bike is a sustainable choice. By choosing to use an e-bike, you will reduce traffic and pollution in this environmentally sensitive landscape and minimising your carbon footprint.
The rural country roads that criss-cross the Forest of Bowland were designed for drovers or horse-drawn vehicles and exploring by zero emission e-bike places less pressure on these narrow byroads.
By stopping at local cafés, inns and artisan producers, you’re supporting the local rural economy, which increasingly depends on tourism to supplement declining incomes from farming.
Rental rates start at £24 for a half day hire. For more details, consult our pricelist.
