This super comfortable Bosch powered low entry cruiser is ideal for day-to-day trips as well as longer rides, and chock full of well thought out details and extras that you will appreciate for years to come - like the easily adjusted stem to suit your mood or different sized riders in a snap.

Gazelle is the top brand in Holland for a reason - the Dutch know how to outfit a bike as daily transportation, in any weather, and tough enough for city streets. The Arroyo epitomizes the Dutch bike philosophy - an upright, comfortable riding bike, full featured with fenders, lights, rack, bell, integrated frame lock, a enclosed chain guard, along with a signature shield so you can wear a long (rain) coat or skirt if you want. Due to the low placement of the mid-motor, the Arroyo feels like a regular bike with excellent maneuverability and handling. The very low step frame makes for easy entry for people of any size or physical capabilities.
