Just got the loaded hybrid e bike for my wife and headed off for a 15 mile test trip. The bike is beautifully put together and seems incredibly quiet compared with other e-bikes we have tried. Power delivery is very smooth and not jerky as other reviews have suggested. We went through 20% battery on a ride which encompassed 450 ft of climb with the power setting at 2 out of 3 and averaged 17 mph which suggests the battery should easily cover 60-70 miles as advertised. The tyres absorb a lot of the uneveness on tarmac and gravel tracks so our worries of no front suspension are not founded if you pick your routes Finally, we can easily lift and load this bike on our bike carrier which is NOT the case with the with the 25kg monsters we have tried.

Bought 2 bikes Hybrid e for my wife and CGR Al e for me. My wife loves the hybrid and the motor certainly helps on the hills here in the pennines. The bike is lightweight for an e bike and easy to ride. Although not womens specific the git at Preston pre purchase was spot on for her. The only downside is the men’s saddle which we have changes dor a Brooks B17 womens and the comfort factor has gone up several notches. Shame it is not an option at purchase as another £60 paid. Overal though 5 stars

CGR AL E- really good ride, I have specced it as a tourer so mudguards and rack add weight although still not overly heavy. Marathon 35mm tyres are fine on road but super on towpath! Also changed saddle for B17 as more suited for longer rides. Motor is excellent, tested up Cragg Vale and you still have to put in effort. Gears failed on ride 2 but sorted back in Preston in 30 mins. Staff knowledge has been spot on, rides and quality super and competitively priced. Highly recommend Ribble and another 5 stars for this bike too.

Frequently Asked
Questions
Do I need to pedal to ride this ebike?

Yes, our ebikes are pedal assisted models which require rider input at all times.

I’m worried that I won’t have full control over the bike?

There’s no need to worry, being a pedal assisted model means you are in full control at all times. When a power assist level is selected the motor simply provides a little extra boost whilst you pedal and does not take over.

Do I need tax, insurance or a licence to ride the ebikes?

No, pedal assisted electric bikes do not require you to hold a valid driver’s licence, pay tax or take out insurance.

How do I charge the battery?

To charge the battery you simply plug the bike into a household socket using the supplied charger and cable. (The optional range extender can also charge the main battery whilst you are on the move).

Can I ride this in the wet?

The bike and propulsion system are fully weather proof so can be ridden in all weather conditions.

Can this bike be purchased on a cycle to work scheme?

Yes, all ebikes can be purchased through all the major cycle to work scheme providers. The government have even adjusted the £1000 limit making obtaining an ebike on cycle to work more beneficial than ever.

Is it possible to test ride the bike?

Test rides of the e-bike are available from Ribble HQ in Preston. We would advise that you contact us ahead of making your journey to ensure there is availability for your test ride. Alternatively, you can hire the e-bike from E-Venture Bikes in Keswick, and the cost of the rental will be deducted from your purchase should you then decide to buy one of our e-bikes. We also have various demo days around the UK which can be viewed via social channels or our events section of the website.

Can I go faster than 15mph?
