Electric bike tours

Extending adventure

The joys of cycle touring are within easier reach for people of varying fitness and experience levels thanks to the growing availability of electric bicycles—or e-bikes. Electric bikes provide power on demand to cyclists for a helping push to get up hills or to help keep up with faster friends. The small, almost hidden engines also make longer distances feel achievable.

Many of BikeTours.com’s local operator partners offer e-bikes to make trips more leisurely or difficult terrain more manageable.

So if you don’t have the fitness level (or confidence) to take on a cycling tour’s daily rides, renting an electric bike can help make this kind of active vacation a reality.

You are NOT cheating by using an electric-assist bike! Their low-impact design, coupled with the pedal-assist options, makes cycle touring accessible for families, partners, and friends. If you’re on the fence, get an e-bike. You’ll be glad you did.”
