PEDAL POWER PLUS
On Yer Bike, with over 100 electric bikes on display, is the biggest supplier in the North, if not the UK, and deserves a serious visit if you are considering an e-bike, writes Susan Osborne
Established in 1991, On Yer Bike is the place to go for just about anything bike related – a one-stop professional shop for cyclists who need to find the right bike and cycling equipment. Whether you’re into pedal power, or a boost from a battery with an electric bike, the array of bikes at On Yer Bike is unrivalled, with a range of prices from under £100 to over £10,000, which means you can choose from a modestly priced child’s cycle, to a very exclusive racing machine.
On Yer Bike also has a massive variety of clothing, parts and accessories, as well as having a fully equipped workshop with Cytech trained mechanics. It is also a designated Hope Tech Shop, Shimano Service Centre, Bosch Diagnostic, Scott Reference and Test Centre.
If you are looking for a bike, there are literally hundreds to choose from in superbly presented showrooms featuring leading global brands such as Trek, Cube, Dahon, Giant, Scott, Diamondback, Raleigh, Whyte and Haibike, plus a full range of accessories and clothing for adults and children.
Cycling has never been as popular, and the new breed of e-bike has opened up the sport to even more people seeking the health and wellbeing benefits, as well as the fun of the great outdoors. On Yer Bike, caters for all levels of cyclist, supplying everything from top-of-the-range professional racing bikes, to cycles for novices, leisure riders and commuters.
John Aspden, who founded the company over 25 years ago, says: “More and more customers are asking about e-bikes, which offer a great combination of fitness, ease and convenience, a green form of transport and of course economy!
“Actually, electric bikes have been around for quite a while. We have been stocking them for over 20 years,” says John. “But they have really taken off in the last three years, partly because battery and motor technology has advanced, making the bikes more efficient, but also because more people are becoming aware of what they can do.”
With so many types of cycle to choose from, you have the opportunity to sit down and chat about your options with an experienced, knowledgeable member of staff. This can be done in comfort in the coffee bar on site, with a freshly made coffee!
