E-bikes

Bike with a boost — E-bikes available on even more tours for 2018!

Available for FREE on over 30 VBT vacations, our electric- assisted E-bikes provide extra help whenever you want it—riding uphill, extending your range at the end of a long day, or simply letting you ride together with partners of different abilities. E-bikes work with your own pedaling, silently reading your exertion and augmenting it.
Now, you can go faster and farther!

why you may want an ebike for your vacation

Why an E-Bike?

  • Allows a couple of mixed ability to
    ride together
  • Opens up hillier destinations
  • Allows you to see more of the destination by extending your range each day
  • Same great bikes that we’ve offered, with the addition of electric assist
  • You still pedal, and feel the reward at the end of a day’s riding
  • Clean, efficient, noiseless and
    easy to operate
  • Our riding staff have fallen for E-bikes, big time!
  • They’re included in the cost of your trip

How Does it Work?

  • An electric motor assists the rider’s pedaling
  • It only boosts your own effort, reading your exertion and adding power. There is no throttle
  • You can choose from multiple levels of assist and have the option for zero assist

Good to Know:

  • If you choose an E-bike (which is heavier than a non-assist version), you will have it for the entire trip. If you are used to riding a higher-performance lightweight bike, you may prefer to choose such a bike and take advantage of our on-tour van transport for the uphill stretches.
  • While the electric assist will ensure that you get up that hill, an E-bike does not make up for the need to be a practiced and comfortable rider. Operators of E-bikes must be capable of and comfortable with all of the usual aspects of bike operation including mounting/dismounting, starting/stopping, pedaling, shifting gears, balancing and maneuvering in varying traffic and road conditions.
  • You may wish to rent an E-bike from your local bike shop for a day to determine if it’s right for you. We think you’ll agree that they’re great!
