The Isle of Wight is a year round cyclists’ paradise, with over 500 miles of cycle and bridleways weaving their way through dramatic and contrasting Island landscapes. The “Bicycle Island” offers something for every cyclist, from multi-day tours to relaxing afternoon rides, and we recently scooped top spot in Lonely Planet’s “Top 10 World Cycling Routes.”
Our Red Squirrel Bikes are fitted with a small battery-powered electric motor, which gives you a subtle power boost when riding along.
This extra boost makes riding in to wind feel like a gentle breeze or up steep hills like a gentle slope.
The Red Squirrel Bike is a Peugeot EC03 200 7 Speed Hybrid with 250w Electric Assistance.
The Red Squirrel bike ensures you can go a little further, take it a little easier or even go a little faster perfect for the Isle of Wight Terrain.
Offering a range of up to 60 miles, the 250 watt front wheel motor provides the three levels of assistance on speeds up to 15.5 mph and a handy walk assist mode when you need to push the bike.
