Nicola’s e-Bike Review – “It will change your life”

Nicole from Teddington came to us on a very rainy day! However, in many ways it was the perfect way to prove just how good the bikes are. If the bike can impress you in horrible conditions, it will amaze you in good conditions! She needed a bike which could help her cycle with her daughter in a child seat, and still tackle hills…

“I purchased a Royal Dutch Gazelle Hybrid electric bike from Cycling Made Easy. This is my review:

The bike is FANTASTIC! I cycle 22 miles a day, 11 of those with my four year old daughter on the back. No hill is too steep or too long on this bike, it eats hills even with 20kg load on the back. We can speed away from traffic lights, keep up with the traffic, manoeuvre through tight spaces and most importantly, we have great fun on the bike and I am not completely exhausted due to the fabulous pedal assist. I could not do this journey day in day out without an electric bike.

I can choose how much assistance I need depending on how much energy I’ve got or how hilly the terrain. Windy days are not a problem any more and we cycle, come rain or shine.

This bike is top top quality and yes, it is costly but worth every penny. I sold two other bikes and things I no longer use to pay for it. 

I whizz past the morning traffic whilst my daughter sings songs and points out the wildlife on our trip. Nothing beats those precious moments shared.  We can stop where we like, no car parks or parking charges. 

Do not hesitate to buy an electric bike, it will change your life. 

Now onto the fabulous service I received from Cycling Made Easy. I emailed my requirements before I arrived, they listened to my needs and I test rode two bikes that matched my requirements. I turned up with my daughter and child seat and then it began to pour with rain. We did the test ride regardless and they even lent me a waterproof coat. I was given a towel to dry off with and a cup of tea on my return. They even put up with my daughter ringing their bell over 100 times! Nothing was too much trouble and all my whims and requirements were met with a smile. 

“Do not hesitate to buy an electric bike, it will change your life.”

I cannot recommend the service, the bike, the post sale service and the huge range of quality bikes more highly.”
