Introducing EBIKE CAFE @Deheers, where good food and great bikes meet
An innovative new venture, EBIKE CAFE @ Deheers opened its doors on Saturday 7th November 2020 in the prestigious Deheers Building along Weymouth’s Old Harbourside.
Owners Peter Claxton and Josephine Parker are championing an active lifestyle, healthier eating and positive mental wellbeing in a COVIDsafe environment through their new-look enterprise. EBIKE CAFE @ Deheers combines their current shop, Dorset CycleLife – a well-established and successful all electric bike shop – with a cafe offering a great selection of nutritious, healthy foods.
Co-owner Josephine Parker explains, “The EBIKE CAFE @ Deheers is our new venture for all your ebike needs. Here you can enjoy wholesome takeaway food and drinks on the iconic Weymouth Harbourside. There is parking for those arriving by cycle, and the opportunity to hire a bike to explore the surrounding area. You can even recharge your bike in the ebike charging points. In addition, customers will find expert technicians in the dedicated service and workshop zone, and a comprehensive sales area.”
On display is a wide range of electric bikes from leading suppliers. In addition to Raleigh, Haibike and Tern brands, EBIKE CAFE @Deheers is the only stockist locally to hold the full range of turbo ebikes from the iconic, market-leading Californian brand Specialized.
Co-owner Peter Claxton says, “Our aim is to give electric bike riders the very best technology by the leading brands. We stock a wide range of ebikes offering a
diversity of riding options. Whether your electric bike is for the daily commute, your shopping needs, trekking through the countryside or more extreme and specialist sports such as enduro, all mountain or downhill biking, we can source the perfect bike for you.”
The market has seen a major shift in personal transport needs this year, led predominantly by health and environmental factors. A recent study carried out by CREDS (Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions) researchers at the University of Leeds has found that electrically assisted bicycles (e-bikes), if used to replace short car travels, have the capability to cut car carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in England by up to 50% (about 30 million tonnes per year). Add to that the benefit of better health and a socially distanced method of travel, it is no wonder bike sales in the UK have doubled in the past two years.
Peter says, “We welcome this change to greener travel habits, cleaner air and healthier communities. Our move to Weymouth gives us a better platform to engage with those considering a more carbon-friendly transport option, whilst providing a complete service for fellow ebike users.”
And what better place to start this new venture than along the historic Weymouth Old Harbourside in the prestigious and sensitively renovated historic Deheers building?
EBIKE CAFE @ Deheers is open seven days a week, from 10am to 4pm, located on the ground floor of Deheers, 9A Custom House Quay, Weymouth, DT4 8BG.
