Jurassic Electric Bikes
We set up the business in 2012 to give guests (whose ages have ranged from 14 to 82!) a truly memorable experience on an electric bike in some of the most iconic West Dorset landscapes. Initially we offered half and full day tours throughout the year with carefully selected routes accompanied by a local knowledgeable guide. Destinations include the Bride Valley near Bridport, Lawrence of Arabia country and around the Isle of Portland.
As our fleet of bikes has grown, tours are increasingly popular with larger groups such as those on hen weekends and corporate ‘away days’. We have even run a successful series of joint events with River Cottage. In addition to the guided tours, we also have a rental option for people who prefer a self-guided experience.
Based on customer feedback, we've been awarded a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for the last two consecutive years and have also been recognized with a Silver in the Activities category of the Dorset Tourism Awards.
Many of our guests have been so impressed with the electric bike they’ve used on a tour that as they are keen to discuss buying an electric bike of their own. This led to us offering ‘Taster’ sessions where people can ‘try before you buy’ to help them make the right purchasing decision. We can deliver bikes so that guests can try them in the location where they will be used and are so pleased to have Kalkhoff models as demonstrators because they cope effortlessly with even the steepest West Dorset hills.
