It’s You, Only Faster

At EBIKE Cafe @ Deheers, Weymouth

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to ride an electric bicycle? If you have, try a free, self-guided test ride and see for yourself at the EBIKE Cafe @ Deheers at Custom House Quay on Weymouth’s beautiful harbourside. The best way to describe riding an eBike is in one of Specialized’s marketing lines: “It’s You, Only Faster” The EBIKE Cafe is the area’s only Specialized eBike retailer.

The EBIKE Cafe offers the world-famous Californian brand’s full range of active and turbo eBikes. Peter and Josephine Claxton chose to work with the Specialized brand because the company shares their commitment to pedal the planet forward with quality, long-lasting eBikes, whilst prioritising minimising their environmental footprint. Co-owner Josephine Claxton has been looking into the stats at a local level, saying: “When it comes to carbon emissions, Dorset is above the national average. In 2018 alone, 4,102 million vehicle kilometres were travelled within the area, with 283,450 vehicles registered in Dorset (2019)*.

It’s no surprise that transport is our biggest emitting sector, contributing 44% of the total carbon emissions or an estimated 765kt CO2 right here where we live. But the tide is changing and investment in cycle routes, supporting legislation and the higher cost of living, is bringing cycling to the fore. The eBike is a powerful tool in the fight against climate change. The assisted pedalling encourages more and longer trips on two wheels to replace those taken by car.” Specialized eBikes are much sought after for their quality, exceptional comfort and smooth, powerful efficiency.

Because we all come in different sizes with different transport needs, there is a Specialized eBike to meet your individual requirements. Whether you’re looking for your daily commute, faster workouts or day-out adventure, there is an eBike for you.

The EBIKE Cafe @ Deheers champions an active lifestyle, healthier eating and positive mental wellbeing in a stunning location on Weymouth harbourside. Since opening its doors in November 2020, it has been on a mission to help Weymouth become a greener, healthier place to live by encouraging local people to ditch their cars and get back on two wheels. The cafe has become a community hub for cyclists, eBikers and local people looking for a greener, healthier lifestyle.

The unique space has become a workspace for home workers looking to escape the four walls of home, and and a vibrant events space for corporate functions, birthday parties and even wedding celebrations. Its stunning harbourside location and adaptable layout offers event organisers the privacy and flexibility to create an intimate gathering or a professional event.
