love-bikeslove-ebikes ltd Scotland’s newest dedicated, specialist and independent electric bicycle shop has recently opened at 694 Dumbarton Road, Thornwood, Glasgow G11 6RB.

From city ebikes, trekking to folding, to mountain ebikes and even cargo electric bikes, they love them all. They offer you a hand-picked selection of what they believe are the best electric cycles on the market and even have carbon trekking ebikes, the only shop in Scotland to stock these.

The shop isn’t your usual high street bike shop. They offer something a bit different, a slant on an more traditional bike shop with a contemporary feel to it. They are a member of the cycle to work scheme (cycle scheme) so if your employer offers this service then come in and have a chat and they can see how much money you can save.

They are open from 10am to 6pm Tue, Wed, Fri and Sat and from 10am to 8pm Thu and 12pm to 4pm Sun – closed on a Monday.

You can find contact details on their website and follow day to day goings on via their Facebook page.
