Towpaths from South Coast to Carlisle by eBike

Customer James recently completed an epic e-bike ride from Emsworth right on the South Coast, to Carlisle via the Shipwrights' Way, Grand Union Canal and Lake District, a journey of over 500 miles in 7 days and a slightly eccentric return journey from a wedding party. James rode one of our Raleigh Motus GTs while Ted had a Riese & Mueller.


They faced some challenging conditions including driving headwinds and heavy snow but also some beautiful days and saw more of the country than many of us get to see in a decade.


I was curious (and if I'm honest, slightly worried) to see how the Motus would manage keeping up with the top-end Riese & Muller but, equipped with a spare battery and charger, James found it performed admirably covering almost 100 miles on the longest day and more than coped with the varied terrain along the way.


At Southern eBike Rentals., we are always delighted to support adventures like this so feel free to get in touch if you have your own big ride planned!
