Derbyshire is a popular tourist area with many cycle routes to enjoy the stunning countryside. What could be better than enjoying the view whilst riding an electric bicycle?
An electric hub motor in either the rear or front wheel can help to take the strain out of inclines or distance riding. The differing frame styles of electric bicycles give riders choices. Select from the easy access of the Dutch tourer or the conventional and familiar cross bar style to the versatility of a folder.
Battery technology has come on in leaps and bounds over the last few years turning electric bicycles into a viable means of transport for leisure or commuting. Furthermore the distance available on a single charge and the lighter weight of lithium batteries have revolutionised the many uses of electric bicycles.
Ripley, Alfreton, Belper and Heanor are located in an area known as Amber Valley in the heart of Derbyshire. The name is taken from the River Amber, the area is rich in heritage and was formally known for coal mining and engineering.
Cycling around Ripley couldn’t be easier! The Ripley Greenway is an off road multi-user route for cyclists, walkers and horse riders. Created by reclaiming the disused Ripley Colliery and Ripley branch railway, the Greenway is a linear route with adjacent green spaces and community artwork installations.
