What you'll do

TURN MOUNTAINS INTO MOLEHILLS Step 1: Meet at my house for e-bike lesson+ equipment fitting. (10 min) Step 2: Assess fitness level and plan route. 20km - 45km of distance traveled and between 400m - 1000m elevation gain is easily possible depending on your fitness & terrain. (10 min) Step 3: Ride 2x ebikes through planned route. I will guide you and keep us safe. (halfway mark at 50% battery left ~ 1.5 hours) Step 4: Stop for food/snack/drinks/coffee depending on route & time of day. (20 min) Step 5: Return cycle home (mostly downhill!) (40 min) WHAT IS A EBIKE? E-bikes such as these are amazing climbing machines - their large wheels and 250 watt motor will help you climb up some nasty tracks and glide over horrible terrain. But you still have to put some effort in. Their quiet electric motors run off a fixed battery capacity with a "pedal assist" setting ranging from 50% - 360%. You still have gears, pedals and brakes. There is no throttle. But if you have ever wanted to feel the power of having 6 legs, here is your chance. Naturally, the fitter you are, the less assist you need, the further we can go!
