3. Electric Bike
(New Zealand, Germany)
In order to be more inclusive we have decided to open our cycling tours to members of your family or friends who might like to join our bike tours but
are hesitant to do so because of their level of fitness or riding ability. To meet their needs we have added the option of renting electric bikes to
some of our tours.
The e-bike is a regular bicycle with the addition of an electric motor to provide assistance. It makes cycling more accessible
to people who aren't regular cyclists. E-bikes provide all the advantages of a regular bike, like fun and exercise, while eliminating one of the
bicycle's more serious drawbacks, lack of power.
The electric drive system is activated through a pedaling action. You pedal normally climbing up a hill as comfortably as riding down.
If you like to join one of our regular tours or have your own custom tour using e-bike/s please let us know and we will be happy
to assist you.
