A and G Motorcycles is the Batribike official local stockist for an electric bike in Dumfries, Scotland. The established family run business is passionate about two-wheeled transport of all kinds. Electric bikes have now been added to the choices on offer at the showroom.
An electric bike for transport and leisure
The local area has a long tradition with cycling, in fact legend has it that the first pedal cycle was invented here by Kirkpatrick Macmillan. Long rods and swing arms were linked to a foot treadle to created a rear wheel drive. Electric bikes are much more sophisticated than that early 1840’s machine and much easier to balance and ride.
An electric bike is a green form of transport. With a full charge only costing a few pence it can be an easy, low cost means of commuting. Electric bikes take the strain out of riding and allow the rider to arrive fresh and ready for the day. Tthey can also help with the journey home after a busy day.
Electric motor assistance allows riders to cope with hills and headwinds making electric bikes popular with leisure riders. A Batribike has user adjustable power levels so that the rider can choose the level of assistance that is right for them. A range of different frame styles including step-through, folding and MTB allows the customer to choose the right style for their requirements.
Local cycle routes
Dumfries and Galloway has plenty of fantastic routes to try, from short journeys in town to longer routes into the beautiful countryside.
There are some lovely routes around Nithsdale. Riders can follow the banks of the beautiful River Nith from the sandstone arches of Devorgilla Bridge, along the estuary to the spectacular ruins of Caerlaverock Castle. There is also the visitor facilities at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. Alternatively it is possible to follow the Caledonian Cycleway, an old railway line, and enjoy a circuit on the quiet roads of Lower Nithsdale and take in the fine views.
The long distance National Route 7 links Sunderland and Inverness. It forms two-thirds of the famous Sea to Sea (C2C) cycle route before heading north to Glasgow via Glen Trool Forest and the Ayrshire coast. Locally NCR 7 links Carlisle, Dumfries and Kirkcudbright, there are lochs and glens, plus miles of coasts and forests on this route and a trip along the former Maxwelltown Railway Line.
