Hurrecane are Brilliant!
I’ve really wanted to get an ebike after trying one out at my local bike shop but the cost of them is quite high to buy outright and I wanted to see how much use I’d get out of it so I decided to search online for a rental and Hurrecane came up. Do not let the reviews put you off, I think that was just teething problems during a very difficult period over Covid & with supply issues. Hurrecane are really brilliant and the team are incredibly friendly and easy to deal with. A few things before you decide to start renting should be noted, you will need insurance (I went with Pedalsure who have been great but my partner added his onto our general home insurance for about £30 annually so it’s not bad at all!) and you may have to compromise with what’s available. Once you purchased your insurance the direct debit will also be setup which can take a couple of weeks to confirm it’s in place – then you schedule a date for your bike to be delivered. I placed my order on the 28th of Jan and they were delivered on the 15th of February! We had a problem with Ben’s controller and Hurrecane came back within the week to replace it and it now works beautifully!
The bikes themselves are really wonderful to ride, so much fun and relaxing! Going up hills is no issue with the pedal assist and you can tailor that to suit if you’d like to work a bit harder or keep it nice and easy. The battery on the bikes lasts long -we’ve never run out even when running a little low on juice and they are easy to charge. They are really attractive bikes, we’ve had tons of compliments and Hurrecane will fix any issues with them (apart from punctures but those are easy enough to fix and we got them slimed to reduce the effect of punctures which I would recommend!).
A big thank you to Mel, Fran and the team at Hurrecane. If you’re looking to rent an ebike, I couldn’t recommend them enough for service and quality of product!
