Let’s be honest, 2020 wasn’t exactly what we all expected but it has brought some benefits. We started appreciating time with loved ones and explored local parks and trails we never knew existed, and they were literally on our doorstep. With a brand-new year around the corner, we can take some of these lessons, maybe making them into attainable new year’s resolutions.
To keep you active and exploring for Christmas and into 2021 we have a list of some of the nicest ebike routes around the UK. Those active new year’s resolutions will be a breeze with our Emu Classics or our brand-new Emu Roam. They even include the following benefits free of charge: becoming greener, keeping healthy, saving money, freedom and many more.
Let’s get out there and roam the beautiful places we have right on our doorstep

The Lakeland Loop, Lake District (Length 64km)
Voted best ride in Britain with 1700 meters of climbing during the trail. The route offers tranquil lake views, quiet roads and Wrynose pass which is a true cycling challenge. Luckily, the Samsung battery will come in handy here. This ride is not for those wanting a flat ride but will not leave you disappointed.
