It’s fair to say that this year has been a bit different and as we head into Autumn how we spend our leisure time has changed too.
People are generally wanting to spend less time indoors and more time in the open air. In the UK the use of parks, forests and woodlands has increased and it’s great to see people getting back to nature. Outdoor activities, where people can get out and not have to worry about social distancing, one-way systems and track and trace are on the up.
Mountain Biking for Beginners
One activity that is on the rise is Mountain Biking. Not much can come close to riding through the changing colours of the forest on an Autumnal day. It’s a great activity for individuals and couples as well as a great way to get all the family out exploring. With more people holidaying at home and taking advantage of a “staycation” taking your mountain bikes with you is also a great idea and a brilliant way of exploring the UK.
Spokes Bike Shop have a huge selection of mountain bikes to get you out on the trails, including the option to build your own custom-made bicycle.
How about 3 wheels instead?
Our retailer Jorvik Tricycles has an incredible selection of mountain bikes with a little added extra – a third wheel.
Flatten hills, turn heads, and expand your world with Jorvik mountain trikes which give you the confidence to ride off the beaten track. With easy-to-use controls and a powerful electric motor, the thrill of adventure is more accessible than ever.
Spreading the cost of the peddle power
E-bikes are growing in popularity, and it’s not hard to see why – after all, maybe it’s the thought of constantly peddling isn’t encouraging you to get into the mountains? Of course, electric bicycles offer many of the same benefits that regular cycling does but because you’ve got an added bit of oomph on board, you’ll be able to travel greater distances and ride for longer.
Our retailer Allen’s E-Bikes promises to deliver the highest quality E-Bikes and E-Motion products and accessories to take you the distance. Not only do they have a great selection of E-Bikes, but they also pride themselves on locating the very best in outdoor gadgets and accessories to make you as comfortable as possible on your ride.
What is even better is that we offer our 0% finance option, meaning you don’t pay any more for choosing how long you spread the cost. So whether you are looking to invest in a starter bike, an experienced mountain biker or a family with a few bikes to buy at once, our credit solution and the products from our retailers are here to help.
Worried about your credit rating? Fear not, it is also possible to purchase mountain bikes on finance with bad credit. The application process is simple and an initial “soft search” will check eligibility . If you aren’t approved at this stage, it won’t affect your credit rating.
Now your only worry is how you get your bike to the forest or trial…
