Take in the local sights of Glenarm Village and stretch further along the Antrim Coast in one of our new state of the art E-Bikes. Fully charged and powered ready for you to hop on and hop off at your leisure.
Hire includes the E-Bike, safety helmet and high visibility jacket as well as local advice and on-site support from our expertly trained staff. We also have standard bikes for children aged 5 and up, with safety helmet and high visibility jacket included. Also available but extremely limited is our multi-purpose trailer, perfect to take toddlers, the picnic or the bucket and spade.
The E-Bikes are limited and are available for full day, half day and weekend bookings.
You ride an E-Bike in exactly the same way as a pedal bike. The difference is that when you pedal, the motor kicks in to help you. There are various motor settings so it is possible to cycle without making any effort at all. Alternatively, you can switch the motor off and ride your bike conventionally.
Treat an E-Bike just the same as a normal bike. Download our handy map of the Antrim Coast and Glens for accessible cycling routes (map kindly provided by the Antrim Coast and Glens Heritage Trust)
You need to be 14 years or older to legally be allowed to ride an E-Bike in the UK. However we do offer standard bikes for children aged below 14 (subject to availability).
No it does not. All of our E-Bike are fully charged before you set off.
To put it simply, riding an E-Bike, is just like riding your normal bike. Just with help from the integrated motor.
With relaxed pedalling expect 22-60 miles on a single charge for most E-Bikes. Range is very much dependent on a number of varying factors, from the hills you want to climb, terrain, wind and rider weight. The E-Bike will let you pedal manually if the charge runs out, so don’t worry you can always get back to the Estate.
Generally speaking the electronic items on all of our E-Bike here are sealed units, from the motor to battery to the head unit/display. They are all weatherproof and have been designed for all purpose use i.e. mountain biking, deep puddles, rain, your E-Bike is expected to be able to handle this without any issues. We strongly ask that you try not to completely submerge the E-Bike.
Unfortunately all of our E-Bike are not suitable to be placed on a car rack and we ask that you cycle from place to place rather than moving the bike manually via a car.
The E-Bike hire operates from a unit above the Tea Room. You must check in to our Welcome Centre first and a staff member will direct you to the course.
