Considering Touring With An E-Bike?
Things to know before you go
What exactly is an E-bike?
We are pleased to offer E-bikes, or pedal-assist bikes, on our tours. These bikes feature state of the art technology and are a fantastic option for bicycle travelers who need a little boost. Here are a few things to keep in mind before deciding if an E-bike is right for you. Our hybrid and u-frame style E-bikes feature state of the art technology that provide a nice boost when your pedal stroke increases. In the simplest of terms, the more you’re pedaling, the more assistance the bike is providing (think uphill climbs!).
E-bikes handle much like a regular bike and provide greater access to bicycle touring for cyclists that 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.
