Wales and the South West of England boast some of the most spectacular landscapes of the British Isles. This Collection takes you from the golden beaches of Swansea Bay to the quintessential countryside of the Cotswolds, the vast moors of Dartmoor and beyond – all on the comfort of an e-bike.

E-bikes are a great way to explore further. With a little electric help, you can comfortably take on hills and long distances that would previously have made your legs buckle. To give you a taste, Halfords is launching an e-bike trial day. You can collect an e-bike in-store and test it out for six hours. The trial is free of charge, just pay a deposit which you get back when you return your bike. To test out how fun e-bikes can be for yourself, find your nearest Halfords store online, book a slot and get ready to explore: blog.halfords.com/halfords-relaunches-electric-bike-trials.

The 10 Tours in this Collection all start from a participating Halfords store so you can pick up your e-bike and get exploring. Each ride is designed to give you a full six hours of adventure so you can fully experience the thrill of e-bikes and enjoy discovering historical sites or stopping for an ice cream along the way.

The rides take you through spectacular scenery and centuries of history. You visit mighty castles, gaze upon panoramic views from countless hillsides, watch waves lap at sandy beaches and rocky coves, pedal around glistening reservoirs, and more.

You can choose from a selection of e-bikes, from hybrid to city bikes and e-MTBs at Halfords. Check the Tour terrain before setting off as some routes are better suited to mountain bikes.

E-bikes are a wonderful way to go further outdoors. Have a go for yourself and discover some beautiful areas in Wales and the South West of England.
