If the sun comes out and you’re in the area, jump on an e-bike to discover Exmoor National Park and the Quantocks Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Launching this weekend (Friday, April 20), the new electric bicycle hire scheme across Exmoor and the Quantocks means that this area of outstanding natural beauty is now even more accessible. The bikes are available to hire from the White Horse Inn, Exford; the Tarr Farm Inn, Dulverton; the Staghunters Inn, Brendon; the Yarn Market Hotel, Dunster; and Exmoor Mountain Bike Hire at Wimbleball Lake and Brushford.

The bikes will go for around twenty miles on a fully charged battery, but by using the many charging points in the area, bikers can go for as far as they wish. Anyone over the age of 14 can use the bikes to discover the wildlife and landscape via the quiet roads, woodlands and moorland.
