Electreks – Book your electric bike at High Borrans Lodges

Hire an e-bike from Electreks and explore the tracks and lanes around the beautiful setting of High Borrans Farm, just 3 miles from Lake Windermere.

We’re delighted to be working with Electreks who have just launched their e-bike hire  at High Borrans:  providing electric bike hire which you can pre-book and pick up right on the farm – one minute walk from your lodge.

Electreks is a new family business, based at the farm,  offering 6 Kross bikes – 3 large, 3 medium for hire.

The KROSS brand is Poland’s largest cycling brand, evolving  within 20 years from a small bicycle shop into a leading manufacturer of bicycles in Europe.  KROSS invested and developed and began to compete technologically and visually with the world competition.  The bikes have Shimano components, hydraulic disc brakes and a Shimano Steps 8000 motor.

Prices for Lake District Lodge Holiday guests are a special £40 a day. (Normal price £45)

Electric bikes have really taken off in the past 2 years – the Europeans are way ahead of us and use them as much as your ‘normal’ bike.  You still have to pedal, but you can use the boost to help you up the hills.  If you’ve an injury, or haven’t ridden for a few years, or are with a partner who is a fast rider on a normal bike, why not give it a go – it is so liberating…   The Lake District is obviously quite a hilly area, but these Kross bikes are fantastic for helping you up those hills, so you can really enjoy coming down the other side!

Your Kross Electric Bike

Jim will sort out your booking and the electric bikes for the agreed dates, and sort out drop-off afterwards. He’ll also provide safety helmets and show you how the bikes work. Contact him here hire@electrecks.co.uk and mention Lake District Lodge Holidays to get your discounted price.

There are some fantastic trails right from the farm gate at High Borrans – head north to Kentmere, or north west to Troutbeck.  Check some ideas out here and here.  

At the moment this service is only available at High Borrans lodges. We are exploring options for other Parks later in the year.

Enjoy your stay and share your experience with us across our social media channels.
