An ebike has a small electric motor which assists the rider whilst pedalling up to a maximum speed of 15.5 mph.
Ebikes reduce the effort needed to pedal and are a great way to get back into cycling, improve fitness or as an alternative to using a vehicle for transport.
Rides are lead by trained volunteers from the Dalbeattie Community Initiative.
There are opportunities to join the project as a volunteer and benefit from cycle ride leader and first aid training courses.
Rides start and finish in Dalbeattie and using a mixture of quiet roads, cycle paths and woodland tracks.
Ride route, length and timing are matched to the aims and ability of participants. We include plenty of opportunity to rest, chat or practise cycling skills.
No, the project is free for participants and volunteers.
The project is managed by the Dalbeattie Community Initiative and supported by Dumfries and Galloway Council, Sustrans, and Cycling UK.
No, bikes and helmets are provided. We have a range of sizes of bike with several easy entry models.
