What our adventurers say

co-founders of BEACON BIKES

As keen mountain bikers that spent as much of our free time as possible cycling the South Downs, the evolution of the Electric Mountain Bike sparked an idea in us.

What if we could go twice the distance, with half the effort, still enjoy our cycling but get a little help with the steeper hills? After purchasing our first E-MTBs, we were hooked and Beacon Bikes was born.
