RESIDENTS are being offered the chance to check out electric bikes at Cowdray this Saturday (June 23).
Anyone over 14 can take part in the taster event between 10am-midday, meeting outside Cowdray Farm Shop, Easebourne.
Cowdray has now become a hire point on the Electric Bicycle Network that was launched recently in the South Downs.
E-bikes open up new parts of the countryside to people who are less agile - allowing more people to climb hills and experience views that may normally be restricted to only the fittest cyclists. Routes from Cowdray will take you to the foot of the Downs where charge points are strategically placed for you and your e-bike to recharge your batteries.
