Although the weather wasn't brilliant we had a great afternoon biking up hill and down dale, something I definitely couldn't do without a little help. With a little stop and a much appreciated Hot chocolate we continued our trip round Dorset. We were thinking of buying an electric bike before the trip now it's a definite purchase. A really enjoyable... More

We were spending weekend in Dorset for 10 sad 50 year olds and we spent the day with Martin and the fabulous electric cycles ( although one of our party was determined to have a work out and did not use the power button!). The cycle ride was lovely,, quiet roads' beautiful views and a great stop at a pub.... More

We saw Marshwood Vale and surrounding countryside in a different light. Thanks Martin for a terrific experience with electric bikes

Did a 3 hour bike tour last week,it was really good.I like cycling but have never been tempted to put bikes on back of car to cycle this area as it is just too hilly for me on a standard bike.The electric bikes are amazing-prolonged,steep gradients require a small amount of input from the rider.Quiet country lanes and beautiful scenery,all...

I hadn't been on a bike for 32 years - till riding 17 miles (relatively) effortlessly and with great joy yesterday. On a perfect Autumn morning, we saw the beauties of Marshwood Vale flying (and - of course - occasionally crawling!) along on our electric bikes. Martin is the most reassuring and helpful of mentors and guides - taking 5... More

What a great experience! I rented a bike from Martin for 4 days when staying at Hector's House in Musbury while doing a course at River Cottage. Everyone thought I was insane to bike the distance and the hills.... Not so bad if you have one of these bad boys that help you over the hills and thru the valleys.... More

Martin was friendly, knowledgeable and good fun. The bikes were fantastic. We covered 17 miles of beautiful countryside, up and down hills we wouldn't otherwise have been able to cycle. I would thoroughly recommend Marshwood Trails, for both a great electric bike tour, and also to try the bikes if you are thinking of buying an electric bike. I am... More

What a fabulous time, cycling in the Marshwood Vale along beautiful country lanes, up and down hills without having to get off and walk. Fantastic experience, when you need to have a push, click on the battery power and there you have it. The best thing is that you still have to pedal so are getting the exercise as well.... More

This was a wonderful afternoon's entertainment. I love cycling but my husband doesn't so this was enjoyable for us both. The bicycles were wonderful, no hill was too steep and really easy to ride. We had a tour of the Marshwood Vale which was beautiful and our guide was very knowledgeable about the area. I would really recommend this for... More

What a lovely afternoon meandering through the stunning country lanes of Marshwood Vale, behind Morcombelake and Lyme. Martin was a darling. Not only did we enjoy lush English countryside at its best, but also met a wonderful sculptor, entered a fascinating church and drank at a bonkers pub. Very jolly birthday treat for my husband - the bicycle trail. My... More
