What is an electric bike? How does it work?
  • An Electric Bike is ideal for urban commuting and short trips around town. It's lithium-ion battery provides clean and efficient energy to a 250 watt motor to power up to 25 km/h and gives a good lift to uphills. The tou will be operated at low speed.
    It also operates quiet, so you can appreciate the world you're riding through.
Will you teach me how to ride an electric bike?
  • If you are not a bike rider this activity may not be a good choice. The e-bike is heavier than a regular one and the electric power assist does not compensate for poor riding skills.

    All first time clients are required to take a quick familiarizing session of the bike controls and operation under our staff guidance. This session is designed to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience and is part of the overall tour time.

    Familiarizing time varies with group size and skill level. Riders are instructed on basic electric bike operation, emergency stops and "Share the Road" policy. All riders are required to wear the helmet provided.
Who can ride an electric bike?
  • Riding an electric bike is similar to riding a regular bike. Although it's intuitive for a skilled rider, you will have 10 minutes of training so you can get familiar with the operation.

    An e-bike is not an ideal mode of touring for people with some mobility issues. The bike weighs 23-25 kg (55 pd) and will need to be pedalled along the route.

    Due to risk of fall, this activity is not recommended for pregnant women and they may participate at their own risk.

    Ages 15 and up are allowed to ride pedelec. The suggested minimum weight for any rider is 40 kg (88 pd).

    Client under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
What should I wear? What if it rains?
  • During summer, dress comfortable, light and in layers and lots of sunblock.
    We highly recommend, comfortable closed toe flat shoes (no high heels, sandals or flip flops).
    During the winter months, bring an extra layer of warm, wind resistant clothing. Gloves are not a bad idea for cold days.

    Rental of handlebar basket for cameras, light jackets and small purses (7 kg max) is available. Backpacks or bulky bags will not fit in the handlebar basket. Please leave bulky backpacks at your hotel.

    Tours run all year long. Rain gear is available for the rare rainy days. Electric bikes are designed to run in any weather.
What if it's very hot during summer in Athens?
  • The average day temperature during the hot months of summer (July and August) in Athens, is 32 Celsius degrees. Some days, the temperature can rise up to 36 - 38 Celsius degrees. Even more rare, thermometer will indicate temperature above 39 degrees.

    The tour will operate except in the event of extreme uncomfortable conditions (too warm for cycling). Still electric cycling, takes away most of the stress to pedal and makes riding fun even during warm days. Besides that you will be provided with 1 or 2 water bottles.
