Here at the Goodlife.bike we’ll help you find an e-bike that best suits your riding style.
We stock an amazing range of Riese & Müller and Moustache e-bikes designed to cater for all budgets and abilities.
An electric bike can be a safe, eco-friendly and cost effective way to get around. Whether you’re looking for extra oomph on your commute into London, reduce the effort in your legs, or conquer the Surrey Hills with ease, an e-bike is great for helping you cover the miles, without arriving at your destination flustered and sweaty, all on a single charge.
And although e-bikes are pedal assisted, it’s still an exercise after all and therefore good for your health, both mentally and physically.
Electric bicycles are an effective and affordable alternative to driving, especially on short or medium length journeys. E-bikes are a much greener choice than petrol and diesel power as the rechargeable electric batteries can be plugged in and powered up in just a short amount of time; a perfect choice for riding around Richmond Park.
E-bikes are as easy to use as conventional cycles and all of our bikes have a simple handlebar mounted control unit providing information about speed, distance, battery life and your selected level of assistance.
Some of our models provide up to 400% support compared to your pedalling.
UK law states that an e-bike is only allowed to assist the rider and up to a speed of 25kmh (that’s 15.5mph).
You don’t need a license, insurance or documentation for your electric bike however you do have to follow the Highway Code like any other road user in England, Scotland and Wales.
All the parts still have to comply with all the same safety standards and testing found on any regular bicycle.
Additionally, you must be 14 years or older.
All our bikes have Bosch bottom bracket mounted motors, also know as mid-drive motors. There are numerous benefits to this type including weight distribution which makes the bike more stable – a major consideration for both road and mountain bikes.
They also help give a much more natural feel to your ride and they’re more efficient as they power the chain rather than moving the wheel forward.
Additionally, all our e-bikes have Lithium ion batteries so you can also probably expect anywhere between 25 and 75 miles of run time on a full charge. Naturally, the more assistance the bike gives, the more power it will draw from the battery.
Our bikes have either an easily removable battery or a socket on the bike that you simply plug in and power up. Our Bosch 400Wh battery typically takes 3.5 hours to charge to 100%. You will get to 50% charge in 1.5 hours.
We recommend you come and talk to us and we’ll take you for a test ride to ensure you get the most suitable e-bike.
