Love cycling but sometimes feel like you could do with a little extra help? The range of electric bikes at Fenetic Wellbeing might be just what you’re looking for!

Living in Shropshire meant I had quite a lot of freedom when I was growing up. In the school holidays, my friends and I would often pack up snacks and drinks and disappear off into the countryside. Walking was always an option, but taking our bikes out was easier. We could go further from home, and much quicker than on foot.
I’m really happy that my sons can still enjoy that freedom now. In fact, I’m often heard to complain that I hardly ever see Lyle – he’s always off on his bike with his friends! As he gets older, he’ll be able to enjoy the network of cycle paths that we have around Shropshire. From where we live in Newport, he can easily get to other local villages, or go further afield to Telford or even Shrewsbury.
Cycling has become much more popular in the UK recently. That’s thanks in part to the huge success of professional cyclists like Sarah Storey, Chris Hoy, and Jason and Laura Kenny. It not only burns calories and gets you fit, but you also get the benefit of fresh air and the local scenery. And of course, you can also follow the example of the Brownlee brothers and follow up your bike ride with cake at a local cafe!
But if you have joint problems, you might feel that cycling isn’t a pastime that you can get involved with. Fenetic Wellbeing’s range of Ebikes are ideal if you love the outdoor life but have physical restrictions like bad knees or arthritis. They all have a Pedal Assist System (PAS) that means you only need to apply light pressure to the pedals to get them moving. The electric motor will then step in and do the hard work for you.
And there’s an e-bike to suit anyone.
The Fenetic Energy Step Through Bike with throttle is ideal for those with joint issues, as the lowered crossbar makes getting on and off easy. There are three levels of pedal assist, and the throttle can be used when the bike is in motion. The bike has six gears and has a range of up to 25 miles from a single charge. And when you don’t need the extra help? Just turn off the power and it can be used as a standard bike.
If you’re looking for something a bit sportier, then how about the Fenetic Spring Electric Mountain bike?
This is a full-blooded, high quality mountain bike. It has 24 speed Shimano gears, Shimano derailleurs, hydraulic disk brakes, and Zoom Forgo suspension. This bike takes 4-6 hours to charge, and you’ll get up to 30 miles from each charge. You don’t need to have joint problems to want to use an electric bike like this one. Just imagine the help it can give you on those extra steep inclines!
And that’s the thing about Fenetic Wellbeing electric bikes – they’re ideal for everyone, not just those with mobility issues. They even make a folding bike that would be great for commuters.
The Fenetic Stowaway folding bike has three levels of PAS that kick in when you turn the pedals. You can use the throttle when the bike is in motion, or turn the power off and just use it as a standard bike. A six hour charge gives you up to 22 miles range, with a top speed of 15mph. It weighs just 20kg and folds down, making it perfect for the last stage of a commute. Just think – no more problems with parking at work!
These are just some of the range of electric bikes that are stocked on the Fenetic Wellbeing website. Prices start from £599 inc VAT, and the bikes come with free delivery and 1 year warranty.
