Reasons to try an E-bike on your cycling holiday

Not sure a cycling trip is for you? An electric bike can be a fantastic introduction to cycling holidays, and many of our small group cycling trips include the option to hire an E-bike. There are many reasons that E-bikes are gaining popularity just now – here are just a few.


You can take on more varied terrains

E-bikes enable any cyclist, from complete novice to seasoned rider, to take on more challenging terrains than those they’d usually choose, from rolling vineyards to steep mountain climbs. Use the support of the bike’s built in motor to give you an extra boost - especially when going up hills.

And cover greater distances

With the support of an E-bike motor, you can go further and see more. You can easily cover 50+ km each day without breaking a sweat, travelling from traditional fishing villages through mountainous valleys or following long coastal paths to a buzzing city, all in the space of a day.

Cycle with someone more (or less) fit than you

If you’re part of a couple or friendship where one of you is much fitter than the other (and who isn’t?), the ability to hire an E-bike means you can take that trip together, and even keep the same pace or take on the same challenges. If you’re concerned about keeping up with a group, an E-bike enables you to pick up the speed when you need a boost, so you can easily keep pace. 

You'll still get a workout

While challenges are more achievable on an e-bike, you’re still moving – a lot! The motor is there to assist you, but the pedalling is still down to you. And, if you feel like working a little harder, you can turn the power down at any time.

Just enjoy the scenery

With an e-bike you get all of the benefits of ‘pottering’ but without the loss of speed. You can easily cycle up to 15km per hour on an E-Bike without working flat out for it. Instead, you’re free to focus on the passing landscapes, villages and people.

Relax, and enjoy the ride. It’s a holiday after all.
