Our E Bikes


Our Red Squirrel Bikes are fitted with a small battery-powered electric motor, which gives you a subtle power boost when riding along.

This extra boost makes riding in to wind feel like a gentle breeze or up steep hills like a gentle slope.

It allows you to cover much more ground than you might be able to on conventional bicycle, giving you more time to explore this wonderful Island!
