Although our tours are leisurely with minimal climbs, we understand the idea of riding a bike might be intimidating to some. Perhaps you’re recovering from surgery or have a condition that warrants a low-energy outing with less wear and tear on the body. Or perhaps you’re very active but would like to try an electric bike as an environmentally friendly and fun option for commuting to work or around town.  Any of these are great reasons to choose an electric bike while experiencing one of our tours.

It is true that you never forget how to ride a bike, and as long as you already have good bike riding skills, learning how to maneuver an electric bicycle is easy. Please arrive an additional 15 minutes early to be fitted and given a quick lesson before your tour begins.

Renting the electric bicycle for your bike tour:

The cost to add an electric bike to your tour experience is $20. If you would like to add an electric bike to your tour, please select that option when you purchase your ticket online.

Requirements for riding an Electric Bike: 

  1. Guests must have good bike riding skills in order to remain safe on an electric bike.  An electric bike does not take the place of biking skills. It does provide “the juice” for guests to have a relaxed and easy ride.
  2. Guests using an electric bike must be at least 15 years of age and accompanied by an adult. Electric bikes can provide as much power as a motor scooter and to ensure everyone’s safety, we want to ensure our guests are mature enough to manage the power of the bicycle.
