One of the very best aspects of touring in your motorhome is the opportunity to see places that you’ve never been; all you need to do is pitch up and get exploring on your next adventure.
Cycling from your campsite is great fun, but it can be tiring; and that’s where electric bikes - also known as ebikes - come in.
Ebikes allow you to cycle further with ease, without having to worry about hills slowing you down. They’re perfect for both recreational cyclists and those who are more experienced.
There are lots of brands now available out there to choose from, and a vast selection of models, so how do you go about choosing one?
Simple - you should choose one from a well-respected manufacturer that’s won numerous awards over the years. That’s why Canyon is a brand that you can trust.
History and heritage
The Canyon brand was born in Germany almost 20 years ago, and since then has grown to become the world’s leading direct-to-consumer bicycle company.
Canyon works in conjunction with the best athletes on the planet to produce an array of award-winning bikes that represent a true passion for riding.
Their cycles are built at an industry-leading factory in Koblenz, Germany, and shipped direct to the buyer in the UK; cutting out the dealership means a cheaper price, with savings passed on to you.
You can also buy in confidence with the knowledge that full UK customer support is available: Canyon is there to help you get the very best from your new bike.
Pathlite:ON won't let you down
If you’re looking to explore further using your motorhome as a base, the Canyon Pathlite:ON is the ideal model for you.
It’s the electric version of Canyon’s popular Pathlite off-road hybrid bike, so you can have complete trust in the build quality and style of your new bike.
The Pathlite:ON will allow you to cover mixed terrain – from muddy paths to city streets – in complete comfort, thanks to its powerful Bosch Performance CX motor.
Not only does the bike look great, it also has a host of features as standard; they include integrated lights, ergonomic hand grips and suspension forks.
Power is provided by the integrated 500Wh battery; if you’d like to go further, you can opt for a second battery on Pathlite:ON 8.0 and Pathlite:ON 9.0 models, giving you a huge 1000Wh of power to tap into when you’re out on your ride, effectively doubling the range.
Other practical features include a built-in pannier rack and mud guards, meaning that the Pathlite:ON is as perfect for trips to the local shops or commuting as it is on muddy country tracks.
Prices for the Pathlite:ON range from £2349 (for the 5.0 model) to £4649 (for the 9.0 model).

With so much heritage to the Canyon brand, it’s no wonder that Canyon continues to expand across the world - in fact, it’s sold more bikes outside its native Germany than within it since 2008.
Plus, there's a UK service centre, which can help take care of any sales and service support that you might need. It's based in Chessington, Greater London, but can serve customers nationwide.
So, when you buy a Canyon ebike, you can rest assured that you’re getting style, quality, a great price – and the best electric bike for your needs.
