When I bought my car from the car sales place next door to the Nan King Chinese restaurant they had two or three electric bikes in the office (we’ll, more of a wooden shack actually). It looked like they were for hire, but I didn’t ask. Might be worth popping-in and enquiring. The young lad who works there speaks good English. His boss is Russian and his English isn’t so good, but I’m sure you could make yourself understood.

I think I’ve also seen a sign about e-bike hire at the commercial centre in Los Dolses, near the Bankia cash machine. I might be wrong, it may just be normal bike hire, but maybe worth a try.

Pete.

In another thread someone mentioned that the Garden Centre in Los Dolses does bike hire, but not sure if that would include E-Bikes.

Oh sorry, the same thread also said Rolo's Cafe in Los Dolses. Maybe that's for the one you saw Pete?

Yes, Rolo's Cafe at Los Dolses sounds about right.

Looks like Ian has a couple of leads to follow up on. Maybe you could update us on how you get on and what the hire costs and the quality of the bikes you hire is like?

I am hoping to hire bikes from I love bike in La Zenia this coming Thursday they are based just before the La Zenia roundabout off the N332 towards Playa Flamenca. 

I did enquire at the car dealers next to the Nan King Chinese restaurant opposite Villamartin plaza, but they only had two ebikes and I need four. 

I will post a full report on the bikes and our experience later this week for other potential users, thanks for all the advice so far.

I was in I love bikes at la zenia a few weeks ago enquiring about a minor problem with my battery for my e bike. The guy was going crazy at 2 people who were bringing bikes back saying he needed a hundred euros extra as they had the bikes for half an hour longer than they should have! When I asked the chap about a new charger which he had in stock he said I needed a new battery at a cost of 400€ and repeatedly told me this until I left the shop. I checked with other stores in the area and it was confirmed that I only needed a new charger!  Needless to say I won’t be going back, just be careful when you are in the shop and read the small print of whatever he gets you to sign. He was an Asian man aged roughly late 50’s ish. Nicola :-)
