E-Bike Rentals in Vancouver

We’ve taken the leap and added a huge fleet of eBikes to our Hornby St. shop.  Below we explain what eBikes are and why they’re the hottest trend in bikes right now.

Definition: eBike: AKA Electric-assist Bike – a bicycle that has an electric motor that boosts the riders’ pedaling

Benefits:  Longer ride time without tiring (up to 120km on a single charge!), faster speed, and no sweating!

These bikes come in many styles, motor and battery combinations, and user interface.  For many of our tour guests and rental customers, this could likely be their first time trying out an eBike so we’ve opted for a “pedal-assist” style of eBike that boosts the riders’ pedal stroke.  With this style of bike, there is no throttle so essentially the bike is used exactly as you would ride a normal bike so there is no learning curve.  Just pedal, shift gears, and use the hand brakes.  Ride all day without getting tired!

Feeling:  Riding an eBike makes you feel like the wind is at your back and you are always traveling downhill.  Who doesn’t like that!

New guided and self-guided tours coming soon!   With the introduction of these amazing bikes, stay tuned for new itineraries that will take us longer distances and higher-elevation routes to see some of the best views in the city.  Our eBikes are now also available for use on our regular tours for those who prefer a little extra boost, for a small additional fee.
