E-BIKE tours are planned for Southampton this summer, in an effort to make the city greener.

Local gift company Made in:Here have paired up with See Southampton, The Hub Cycleworks and the Mercure Southampton Dolphin Hotel to launch the tours which will start July 4.

Groups of up to sixteen people will be provided with electric bikes, sanitised helmets and map of the route.  

Tours will be led by a SEE Southampton Guide and supported by a 'Tour Assistant.'

A spokesperson for Made in:Here said: "Electric bikes are extremely comfortable, easy to pedal, non-polluting and sustainable, and the batteries last several hours.

"With this formidable pedal power, tour participants will be able to cover much wider areas than just the city centre, including Mayflower Park, the Old Bowling Green and the Saints stadium among many other stopping points.

"Requirements: be 16 years old+, know how to cycle, have a good mood and a spirit of adventure!"

Ebike Tours run on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month at 10am from the Mercure Dolphin Hotel car park and on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6pm.  
All tours last two hours.

Pre-booking is essential on www.madeinhere.co.uk/ebiketours 
Tickets cost £18pp for adults and £16.50 for 16-18 year olds.
