E-bike Hire

Explore the spectacular coastal scenery of Whitehead and Islandmagee by e-bike. Take a spin around East Antrim’s popular coastal village, through the town to the Diamond Jubilee wood, to the Beach Road Nature Reserve and past the coloured houses on Marine Parade.

Cycle along the iconic Blackhead coastal path where you can park your bike and follow the cliff path around the lighthouse for spectacular bird's-eye views of the lough, Islandmagee, County Down and, on a clear day, Scotland. E-bikes are fun, easy to use and brilliant for people who prefer a power boost up the hills meaning you can enjoy the views with minimum effort.

Guided e-bike Tour

Guided e-bike tours are also available to book with Pedal2Places' fully qualified guides. Starting at the Whitehead Hub, take a tour of the village and along the Blackhead Path, stopping off for a walk around the iconic Lighthouse on the cliff.

An ideal way to try out e-bikes for the first time and hear lots of local stories as you go!
