We did the Bride Valley tour with Martin last weekend for my sister's Hen Do. It was such a lovely scenic route (especially for those of us who come from the big city!) & we loved seeing all the little thatched cottages & rose gardens. Martin was very helpful & helped put us all at our ease. I hadn't been... More

Martin was lovely and very patient with our group of Hens ;-) The tour we did was breathtaking, especially the picnic spot! WOW The bikes were great and took some of the pain out of a long bike ride, Perfect for a bit of gentle exercise whilst enjoying this beautiful part of the country.

We did the Portland tour this time on a beautiful sunny Easter Monday. Martin was extremely accommodating of our mixed age group, mostly in our 50's with varying levels of fitness, but the exception was my mother who will not thank me for telling you is 82! Once again we all loved the adventure and Martins excellent knowledge just adds... More

We have been visiting West Doset for many years...catching up with family and many of Dorsets beauty spots. We called Marshwood in the morning of Easter Saturday hoping we could squeeze into a tour on that day.... The weather was glorious... We ended up being the five of us for a stunning tour. We met in Portesham and had a... More

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
