50cycles Shoreham 50cycles Electric Bike Shop in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex

We've joined the growing number of cycle shops on Britain's high streets by opening a couple of new showrooms this year.

Our Bristol electric bike showroom does stand alone in that area of the city, but we're directly opposite established cycle businesses in both our Shoreham-by-Sea (handy for Brighton, Worthing and the rest of Sussex) and East Sheen, London locations. But that's not a problem because we're not just any old bike shop and these are not any old bikes. These are electric bicycles. They’re like bikes, but better. So we've posted this in all our showroom windows

Here are eight great reasons to upgrade to an electric bike

  1. London and Sussex are really quite hilly

    Cycling is great until you get to a hill. Most cyclists go out of their way to avoid them. With an electric bike, hills are flattened and your local area becomes easier to cycle around without exhausting yourself.

    You'll probably end up exploring new areas which you considered out of reach on a pedal cycle.


  2. Shortcut to FreedomOne of the most satisfying things about owning and riding an electric bicycle is the feeling of freedom and independence it gives. You’re no longer at the mercy of strikes, overcrowded trains, tubes and buses or traffic congestion. You’re free, whatever your age or ability. 
  3. Parking

    Metered parking is wildly expensive and the time spent trying to find a space eats into the time saved by driving. Bicycle parking is free and generally more abundant and more convenient than car parking.

  4. Electric Bike Safety

    On an electric bike it’s easier to get out of trouble and you’re less likely to become an obstacle for everyone else on the road. Electric bikes make everyone a strong, confident cyclist. More on electric bike safety and why electric bikes are safer in London

  5. Save Money

    When you add up fuel, taxes, insurance, fares, parking expenses and even shoe leather, owning and running an electric bike is cheaper per mile than any other form of transport. The initial outlay can be recouped in less than a year.

    We also offer interest-free electric bike finance in all our showrooms.

  6. Get fit and stay well

    Electric bikes are the ideal way to explore cycling as an alternative to sitting there fuming in a traffic jam. You still get a healthy dose of exercise. Whatever your fitness or experience, riding one may be one of the best things you can do for your overall health and wellbeing. Our Impulse Ergo XXL electric bike even helps keep your heart rate steady throughout your ride.

  7. The Fastest Way to Travel

    It’s no secret that electric bikes are faster than pedal cycles. There’s pleasure to be had in overtaking squads of serious cyclists, especially on uphill sections. Your city suddenly feels smaller and less daunting on a good electric bike.

There are many more reasons to own and ride an e-bike. We have the best on the market here. It’s really worth trying one for yourself, so please, pop in now for your free, no obligation test ride. We can almost guarantee you’ll come back with a smile on your face.
