We love the uniqueness of Porthcawl Bike Hire. A genuine shop with a real passion for what they do, it’s great to have them on board the VOLT dealership.

We first heard from this family run business when they added a couple of our e-trikes (VOLT Explorer) to their rental range. In two weeks time they’ll be receiving a couple of our greatly coveted Bigfoot models, where people can view, test ride and buy this fat tyre e-bike.  With this imminent arrival it seemed like a good time to find out just what makes the guys at Porthcawl Bike Hire tick!

Bicycle Den owner enjoying a mug of coffee

If you were enjoying the sunshine over the bank holiday weekend, the unprecedented December floods might seem nothing but a distant memory; but for those worse affected it’s been a long, hard six months.

Situated right on the waterfront, The Bicycle Den in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire is an idyllic location to browse and test ride bikes or even just visit for coffee (yes, they have an awesome coffee lounge too!). Unfortunately, this seemingly perfect location also meant they were badly hit when the River Calder burst its banks, six months ago.

The Bicycle Den has battled through and have opened up their doors once more and we’re delighted to feature them in our Dealer Spotlight…  Continue reading -> “Defiant Hebden Bridge in the Spotlight”
