If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to ride an e-bike, then you’ve got the chance to take one for a spin around Manchester this weekend.

MATE – the “fashion forward e-bike brand” which is a firm-favourite of city dwellers and is loved by celebrities right around the world – will be popping up in Spinningfields Square between the 10 – 13 June to offer Mancunians the chance to see the bikes in person.

Created to challenge urban traffic congestion, climate change, and health issues with the mantra “more miles on bikes”, MATE has a wide range of e-bike options available, so whether it’s to make your daily work commute easier, or to tackle tougher off-road terrain, it’ll make a world of difference to your daily routine.

If you think you’ve seen MATE bikes around Manchester before, then that’s because the brand recently arrived in the city with an exclusive pop-up located in luxury retailer Harvey Nichols.

This arrival is perfectly timed – as the global demand for e-bikes skyrockets and Brits continue their search for alternative modes of transport for their daily commute.


Not only are MATE bikes eco-friendly and COVID-safe, but they’re also pretty fun too. 

Bikes have always given us the freedom to explore and have fun, but now e-bikes allow us to go much further and faster by helping us to tackle bigger hills, carry heavier loads, get in shape and even save the planet at the same time – but there’s no denying that they can also be expensive.


Just like we wouldn’t expect to buy a car without taking it out for a test drive, MATE doesn’t expect you to buy an e-bike without trying it first.

Fancy seeing what all the hype is about then?

Head on down to the MATE pop-up at Spinningfields Square to book a free test ride this weekend.


The whole MATE range is available to purchase at Harvey Nichols Manchester now, online at harveynichols.com, and via the MATE BIKE website – with delivery as quick as seven days, and ‘0% Finance’ options also available.
