I've never been on an e-bike before; is it easy to pick up?

Yes! We have guests of varying fitness levels and ages join us for this tour as it’s one of the best introductions to e-biking. We use Peugeot ETO1 pedal-assist e-bikes with a bosch pedaling motor, so you can choose your pedaling assistance between 0-4. We will explain the bikes and allow you to practice before beginning the tour.

Is this a family-friendly tour?

This is a great tour for older kids who are about 8+ years old or very young children. We have both 28″ & 26″ frames for kids who can ride their own bike, plus child seats that attach to an adult’s bike for kids ages 0-6 years old. We unfortunately do not have any bikes or accessories that would be good for young kids who can ride on their own or those who need training wheels. We maintain a leisurely pace and have crafted a route that is safe and fun.
