eBike hire is a new venture for this year (2019) – so the bikes are brand new.
Gilfach Farm sits in a valley, surrounded by the majestic hills and mountains of the Brecon Beacons. Whilst in an ideal location for getting out and about, if you are not a seasoned cyclist, cycling from the Gilfach can prove something of an uphill struggle!
For those who would like to make the most of the outdoors without having to be super fit, you can try a mountain eBike. They are ideal for country roads and forest trails/dirt tracks.
eBikes operate by reducing the effort in peddling. The power assist only contributes when the rider pushes on the pedals. You can choose how much assistance you need. The more assistance given, the quicker the battery will drain. One novice rider observed that: “I’s like being pushed along by my Dad when I was six”.
