What is an electric mountain bike? Electric pedal assist mountain bikes, or e-MTBs, amplify the power you put into the bike while pedaling. When you stop pedaling, the motor stops assisting. You still have to earn your fun, but you get a better return on your energy investment. You will ride on a mix of pavement, gravel pathways and single track trails.

A helmet & electric (pedal assist) mountain bike are provided.

This tour is suitable for beginners. You should  be comfortable riding some type of human propelled, two wheeled bicycle prior to taking this tour. e-mountain biking is most similar to mountain biking, but much less work!

Please be prepared for the mountain weather, it changes quickly. A raincoat is mandatory as you never know when to expect a shower.
