Few things give the sense of freedom and wellbeing like riding a bike in spectacular countryside. While West Dorset is a great place to explore, we’d be the first to admit that it isn't exactly flat!

However, you won't need to worry about hills on one of our incredible electric bikes as they provide assistance just when you need it most, making cycling an absolute breeze.

Guest Reviews

My husband, 1 year old daughter and I had a great morning out cycling. Highly recommended even if you don’t think you’re fit enough.
We loved the electric bikes and our first tour (Bride Valley) so much, that we booked another one (Portesham and Upwey) for a few days later.
I would recommend these electric bike tours to ANYONE. We were a party ranging from 18 – 71 in age and EVERYONE just loved it.
My sister organised this as we were visiting from Australia, and it was really the best afternoon we had in the UK.
The bikes are really comfortable and easy to control and we couldn’t believe how straightforward they made cycling uphill.
We toured beautiful inland spots we would otherwise have missed. I will definitely do it again. Anyone who can ride a bike will love this experience.
Martin is a pleasure to travel with, full of interesting local information. Would I recommend his tour? Yes, with the greatest enthusiasm.
Marshwood Trails offered us the perfect opportunity to enjoy a lovely bike ride through glorious countryside with a very knowledgeable guide.
Apart from the true beauty of the area one must mention how simple it was to use the bikes and just how simple they made climbing the steepest of hills.
The electric bikes made it possible to see a lot more of the peninsula than we could have done in a day otherwise. Cannot recommend this highly enough.

 ”An excellent tour for a Hen Do”5 of 5 stars    Reviewed 7 June 2014

We did the Bride Valley tour with Martin last weekend for my sister’s Hen Do. It was such a lovely scenic route (especially for those of us who come from the big city!) & we loved seeing all the little thatched cottages & rose gardens. Martin was very helpful & helped put us all at our ease. Every single person in our group really enjoyed the tour & the electric bikes were amazing! They are so much easier than normal bikes. Martin also took some lovely ‘action’ photos of us & the pub that he suggested for our lunch was the perfect choice. A really excellent experience & one I would definitely recommend without hesitation.
