We can now offer our guests electric bike hire in Windermere. Which means exploring the Lake District is just a little bit easier, not to mention greener. It’s amazing how much more you see, smell and hear when you’re out of the car. Now you can fully immerse yourself in our wonderful landscape.
We have recently taken delivery of four fantastic ‘Ideal FuTour’ electric bikes for the exclusive use of our Matson Ground guests when you stay in one of our Windermere cottages. The bikes are available for hire from a single day right up to a full week.
Head for the Hills
What a great opportunity to explore the hills, fells and lakes of the Lake District’s stunning landscape. This is without doubt great cycling country, the western shore in particular being a fantastic spot for bikes. A chance to enjoy quiet, traffic free lanes. A chance to find hidden gems.
You can cross to the western shore on the car ferry and cycle the lake shore track to Wray Castle. Or explore the peaceful countryside between Windermere and Coniston? Maybe take in a spot of lunch in Hawkshead?
You could stay a little more local, exploring the lanes around Bowness and Windermere. Take the ‘gated road’ from just outside the Matson Ground Estate and pop across to Ings, where you can quench your thirst in the Watermill.
The options are endless, as are the stunning views. Get away from the hustle and bustle of Bowness and Windermere and soak up the peace and quiet of the surrounding area. And if your legs begin to feel a little heavy, the motor will kick in to give you that little extra oomph.
The price for a single day is £50.00 / bike, but weekend rates and multi-day rates with generous discounts are also available.
The Technical Bit
The Ideal FuTour Ebike Low Step has been built to be ridden in all conditions, although we do prefer it when it’s sunny!
There is a 250 watt Shimano drive motor which will assist you up to speeds of 15.5mph (great for those hills). It’s powered by a 36 volt 418wh lithium-ion battery which can give an impressive range of up to 90 miles per full charge.
The handlebar-mounted Shimano STEPS display delivers a complete range of information, such as speed, tripometer and battery indicator. There is also a walk-assist function.
The motor delivers a smooth yet powerful natural riding experience. It is combined with a Shimano Altus 8-speed, more than capable of handling all of your daily activities.
It has an adjustable preload suspension fork and adjustable handlebar stem. The comfortable upright riding position is ideal for long rides. In short, this is the perfect way to explore Windermere and the surrounding area.
