This is the first of five “Try an E-bike” events in June and July in different parts of Dewsbury organised by EPIKs, a local environmental not for profit organisation, with support of Dewsbury’s Kirklees councillors.

Test rides with an instructor are free to residents but ideally are pre-booked and are suitable for adults who can already ride a bike.

Visitors to Crow Nest Park in Dewsbury on Saturday, June 25 will be able to test ride an e-bike

Chas Ball, event organiser, said: “At a time of rising fuel prices and transport disruption, e-bikes are a real alternative.

“They are increasingly popular for short journeys and make cycling an attractive option in hilly areas.

“With an electric motor to help you pedal, e-bikes make journey times shorter, and hill climbs easier.

“As the benefits of the e-bike become clearer, they will become a normal way to make short journeys.

“Finding the right e-bike can be a challenge, so we’re offering Dewsbury residents the chance to try one locally for free.

“We are delighted Dewsbury’s councillors are supporting a focus on cycling with events all over the summer.”
