First of all, it is important to know that an e-bike features a small electric engine and battery that assist and ease your pedaling. It does not feature autonomous propulsion. It is like having a tailwind, but you still have to pedal yourself.
It’s not easy…
Riding an e-bike can greatly contribute to the pleasure of your holiday. However, an e-bike is not a solution for untrained cyclists. It is absolutely not easy to handle such a bike. The engine and battery make it a lot heavier than a regular bicycle and it accelerates faster. Handling it well therefore requires good basic cycling skills and confidence, especially when cycling in a group.
For persons who are smaller than approx. 155 cm/ 5.08 ft. the offer of small e-bikes is very limited. Booking a small e-bike is therefore only possible on request, and the booking is guaranteed only after confirmation by us. Boat Bike Tours reserves the right to reject a reservation request.
If you are unsure whether renting an e-bike is a good idea, you can ask our sales team for advice by mail, chat or telephone.
