Top 5 beautiful E-bike routes in the UK

So you’ve just bought a brand new PowerRide E-bike, and you’re looking for some great cycling routes to try out!? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled a list of five excellent E-bike routes and trails for riders of all experience levels. There’s something for everyone!

1. Bristol to Bath (13miles/21km)

Our first E-bike route begins in Bristol and ends in Bath. It’s a more gentle trail, offering pleasant scenery, great cycling conditions and allows you to travel beyond the confines of a single lap. This route is perfect for riders of all ages, skills and experience levels thanks to the route being largely flat, tarmacked and free from traffic. Passing through several villages and towns, there is plenty of places to stop off for lunch or a light refreshment too.

2. The Camel Trail: Cornwall (18miles/29km)

If you’re looking for a longer but still moderately leisurely E-bike route then The Camel Trail in Cornwall is perfect for you! Nicknamed the Camel Trail because it follows the Camel Estuary and Camel Valley, there is beautiful inland and coastal scenery. The route largely takes place on a disused railway track meaning there are few sharp twists or turns. It’s an excellent route if you want to get used to riding your E-bike for long periods of time. Furthermore, this popular cycling trail ends in the historic town of Bodmin.

3. The Gower Peninsula: South Wales (28miles/45km)

The Gower Peninsula is a largely coastal route located in South Wales. The challenging route will take you through a myriad of terrains including woodlands, coastal cliffs and dunes, rocky passes and steep hills. Don’t miss out on the chance to cycle the Cefn Bryn, an ancient ridge that stretches for five miles. However, you should note, this route is very popular and can get extremely crowded during the summer months.

4. Epping Forest: London (12miles/19km)

Away from the hustle and bustle of the capital city, Epping Forest provides an idyllic escape for E-bikers of all abilities. The forest is 12 miles in length and while there is no set route there’s plenty of space to ride back and forth or even loop the entire woodland. We’d recommend undertaking this trail during summer as during the colder months the forest tends to incredibly slippery.

5. The Long Gap: Brecon Beacons National Park (22miles/35km)

Arguably the most difficult of the e-bike routes in this blog, The Long Gap in Brecon Beacons National Park, is a favourite for avid cyclists. Home to Pen y Fan, the highest point in south Wales at 886m, The Long Gap allows plenty of opportunities to appreciate the remarkable scenery that the UK has to offer. A valley that divides two mountains, almost perfectly symmetrical, this route is perfect for mountain bike enthusiasts too. This route is no doubt challenging but as many cyclists would agree, all worth it!

We hope you found our guide to the Top 5 UK E-bike routes interesting and informative! If you haven’t already purchased an E-bike and this blog has left you feeling inspired to try out one of these routes for yourself, then be sure to check out the excellent E-bikes we have to offer on the Powerride website today.
