The third and final choice is to embrace the revolution and rent an E-Bike for your trip. If you’ve never ridden an E-Bike before, be ready for a lot of fun. Everyone who tested these bikes from the Wilderness Team had a smile as wide as the Atlantic, simply great fun.
We should probably explain that if you’re looking for a motorbike you’re going to be disappointed. This is still a bicycle and you’re still going to get a workout. However, the e-bike motor amplifies your pedalling effort and makes you feel like the wind is always at your back and helping you along the way. If you ride an E-Bike you’ll find that both the miles and hills melt away, leaving you to enjoy the terrain and landscapes to the full. What you may find with an E-Bike, is that it allows you to complete one of our more challenging trips or allow you to keep up with your partner or friends throughout the day. If you do hire one, we guarantee that it will be impossible not to grin as you cruise past them on the hills.
The e-bikes we have selected are the Verve+ which feature a lightweight aluminium frame, a 250-watt Bosch Active Line mid-drive motor capable of helping you sustain speeds up to 25 km/h all controlled from a handlebar-mounted switch. The Verve+ is also equipped with wide 45mm tyres for extra stability, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes for all-weather stopping power. It also has some cool features like the integrated Lync light system.
