"We hired electric bikes and had a blast, definitely the way to see the island..."
EBikes have motors designed to deliver power that assists normal pedalling. The motor provides assistance only when the rider pedals. This means there is no sudden jolty bursts of power just a smooth boost to assist you when needed. Our bikes have normal gears coupled with different power assist levels, from no power to maximum to boost you up the hills on the Island.
