Our philosophy at the EBIKE Cafe is all about ‘Health & Wellbeing’. Eating healthy and regular exercise is even more important as we all navigate this new normal in the Coronavirus pandemic.
During the current lockdown we are open for EBIKE sales, servicing, repairs and the cafe is open for takeaway drinks and food. If you wish to visit our EBIKE shop (Dorchester CycleLife) within the EBIKE Cafe, we would highly recommend booking an appointment with us by calling Peter or Josephine on 01305 786 839. This could be to find out more about EBIKING, how EBIKES work, have your EBIKE serviced, repaired or to look at our current range. When you arrive for your appointment, please use the entrance to the side of the building on East Street.
Bicycle manufacturers have responded very rapidly to the events of 2020. Our main brand – Specialized – is a Californian company and a very good example of this dynamism. Lauded widely as the best bikes, they are industry-leading and highly desirable. You can see the options by clicking through to our website www.dorsetcyclelife.com Their range of urban, MTB and superlight commuting bikes has something for everyone, all backed up by an industry-leading 4 year warranty on the electric components.
We also sell the ever-popular Raleigh Motus and Centros Bosch-motored ebikes as well as the whole range from the innovative German manufacturer Haibike. Again please look at www.dorsetcyclelife.com for more details.
From the large variety of ebikes we sell we can show you the best options for you – urban, eMTB, touring or cargo.

Ebikes are sophisticated pieces of expensive kit that should be looked after, they will survive pretty heavy abuse out on the roads and trails but having invested all that money we do urge you as a minimum to clean your bike, lube the transmission and look after the battery.
Advice is always free and we are delighted to share our experiences and tips either face-to-face or over the ‘phone, whatever suits you. We do not service or repair non-ebikes. More…

With our available ebikes for hire, ‘You don’t have to be fit to have fun!’
In June 2014 Dorset CycleLife opened in Poundbury, Dorchester. Over the next 6 years, we brought ebikes – and all the benefits of riding them – to a huge number of people.
Move forward to January 2021 and the world is a different place. Global pandemic, new methods of moving ourselves around in urban environments and an over-arching understanding that we must look after our health, and that of the planet.
The EBIKE CAFE @ Deheers has at its heart a continuation of our existing bike sales operation (Dorset CycleLife) with the addition of 2 new elements – the cafe and an ebike hire service. Dorset CycleLife has moved totally from Poundbury and relocated to this beautiful, unique location in one of the sunniest and most cyclist-friendly locations in the South. This development is a natural progression for the original Dorset CycleLife business, allowing us to offer clients a real focus and community.
The development of our original business, Dorset CycleLife, to the new EBIKE CAFE @ Deheers was born out of chance meeting between 3 of the people involved. When we first discussed it, it made sense. Absolute sense. We are very aware that we have a fantastic community of customers, riders and friends all of whom get ebikes, the benefits and the sheer fun they bring to anyone’s life.
Come and visit Dorset CycleLife in our new home – at the ebike cafe @ Deheers!
Our passion for people is infectious! We love to connect with you all on social media, it’s all about sharing the love. We hope you like our safe haven and community hub as much as we do…
