About Electric Bikes Guildford
Electric Bikes Guildford (EBG) was initiated by the owners Chris and Annie Ogle in 2014 and the shop was opened on January 27 2015.
Chris has spent a career in finance but always wanted to have his own business. He believes that electric bikes are on the cusp of a revolution, enabling more people to cycle so that we can clean up our roads, the air quality and get fit in the process.
Chris and Annie are both keen bike riders, riding road and off road bikes whenever they can. Chris came to cycling from running, having competed for Belgrave Harriers and Surrey. Annie has been a personal trainer for nearly 20 years and knows pretty much all there is to know about fitness. She is also a very good cyclist with a number of records to her name in the Surrey hills and beyond.
Since opening the shop we have expanded our range of bikes and we now carry a fleet of about 80 bikes ranging from full suspension mountain bikes, to hybrids, Dutch bikes (Gazelles) ,folding and cargo bikes.
The shop is open 5 days a week, (closed Tuesdays and Sundays) with no appointment required. We will explain to you the benefits of electric bikes and we will help you choose the right bike for you. We are very low key. There is no time pressure and please ask as many questions as you want. You can try the bike out in the car park behind the shop, or in the surrounding roads and we will take you for a spin if you would like to go further.
If you want the bikes delivered we can do this. We do this personally in our zero-emission electric van and don’t charge within a 15 mile radius from the shop. We make sure that you are happy with all the controls etc before we leave you. We will then do an initial service for free after 6 to 8 weeks.
We also hire bikes, so you can try before you buy. Hire rates are from £30 per day and if you buy the bike we will deduct the hire cost from the price of the bike.
We service the bikes and in the event of any problems we will get things rectified. We offer a very personal service and we are proud of the comments that we have received from our customers.
