This is our third time hiring bikes and we will be back again next year. The first time we took a tour with Luke and it was fantastic and definitely recommend for a first time. After that we decided to brave it alone. We wanted to do the granite way which was quite away from the bike hire base, however... More

I hired the bike on a sunny late October day when Dartmoor was bathed in golden Autumn hues. My purpose was to test ride the bike before purchase. Leaving the cycle hire you are immediately on a steep climb up a peaceful back lane which would normally have me panting and sweating. The electric bike sailed up the incline with... More

Recently, a friend told me that she "loved" electric bikes, so approaching an unfit 60 years of age, my husband and I decided to give it a go. So glad we did, what a thrill. Luke was not only enthusiastically helpful, he was a font of knowledge, we could have spent the morning chatting to him and then the afternoon... More

A weekend away in beautiful countryside and the chance to try out electric bikes for the first time allowed six friends to venture further afield and get to the remotest areas of Dartmoor and have fun in the countryside. We met Luke at Buckfastleigh Station (though this wasflexible) where he delivered the bikes. Luke gave us thorough tuition of the... More

This was the best day of our holiday by far. So much fun and the perfect activity with teenagers. We hired the bikes for an afternoon, The scenery was stunning and Luke was extremely helpful setting us up with instructions and directions.

I booked a 3 hour ride with Dartmoor Electric Bicycles for my wife's birthday (we are both in our late 60s). We were lucky with the weather and with Luke, who was a brilliant guide. We had a great time just the 3 of us; Luke is well versed in local history and natural history and made it very interesting... More

If there had been a six star option I would have pressed it! I booked this for a friend's birthday and she loved it! Luke gave us the most incredible tour of Dartmoor - complete with coffee and cake stop at Holne! The bikes are very easy to operate and i loved the turbo mode - great for Dartmeet Hill!... More

Fantastic afternoon's cycling tour of north Dartmoor lanes, villages and moors with our knowledgeable and very friendly guide, Luke. The electric assist bikes were great as you pedalled but were assisted up the hills, with what seemed like only a little effort. Weather was great, cycling in sunshine on top of the moors as well as in the shade along... More

My partner and I hired bikes for the day and had a great time exploring. Luke spent time with us before we left recommending routes and giving us a useful map. The bikes were great quality and this is certainly something I'd come back to do.
