Another visit and ride at Kirkby Stephen on 18th April.


You might remember my ride report of our last visit to Kirkby Stephen back on November 8th. This was a great day out for the mtb section of the club and was organised by Mike Sunderland (kdcs member) and Paul Clow the owner of  Eden e Motion electric assist bike shop.

 The good news is that we have been invited back for another demo day and ride and of course all those wonderful refreshments post ride.
For this event however, Paul has organised eight Scott electric mountain bikes for us to try and use on the ride. If you have never tried an electric assist bike or been on one of the club's mountain bike rides, this is an opportunity for you entirely free of cost.
Another reason for me bringing this to the attention of the club as a whole is that Paul has an extensive stock of every type of electric bike. If you only ride road bikes he will have something of interest for you.

Why not come along, even if you don't join the mtb ride you will be able to try out different makes of bikes, both mtb and road.  I am sure you will be impressed and see the many benefits of an electric assist bike.

To save time on arrival, and for mtb riders to make sure you get your hand on one of those brilliant Scott mtbs give Paul a ring 07483901529 or e mail him to
eembikes@gmail.com  Let him know what you are interested in:

Scott e-Genius 710 (Shimano)
Scott e-strike 920 (Bosch)

and your frame size etc. I know you will have a super day.
Cheers and best wishes, Bill.
