Things to know before you go
What is an E-bike?
As implied by name, E-bikes are powered by a rechargeable electric battery that supplies power to a motor that gives the bike a nice boost when you pedal. In the simplest of terms, the more you pedal, the more assistance the bike provides.
E-bikes provide greater access to bicycle touring for cyclists who are recovering from injuries (and have not fully regained previous fitness levels), less-experienced riders, and those desiring the opportunity to conquer more challenging tours.
On our European tours we offer two main types of pedal assist E-bikes: E-hybrid and E-road. In South America, we offer E-mountain bikes. All the E-bikes we offer use the same type of technology, but the maximum distance each bike can travel on a fully charged battery differs. Please note: E-bikes are currently not available on Expedition Tours. You can read about exact specifications on our bikes page.
