What is an E-bike? How does it work? Why is it for me?

 

An electric bicycle, also known as an e-bike, is a bicycle with an integrated electric motor which can be used for propulsion. There are a great variety of different types of e-bikes available worldwide, from e-bikes that only have a small motor to assist the rider’s pedal-power (i.e. pedelecs) to somewhat more powerful e-bikes which tend closer to moped-style functionality: all, however, retain the ability to be pedalled by the rider and are therefore not electric motorcycles. E-bikes use rechargeable batteries and the lighter varieties can travel up to 25 to 32 km/h (16 to 20 mph), depending on the laws of the country in which they are sold, while the more high-powered varieties can often do over 45 km/h (28 mph).

The cycle tours don’t have any technical difficulties, there are only very few ascents! Some physical fitness and stamina are necessary though as well as cycle equipment like trainers, rucksack, sun- and rain protection, comfortable sports cloths, jacket, jumper aso. The routes can easily be road on with trekking bikes – mostly they are asphalted cycle paths, a few stretches are gravel and forest paths. Should you want to spend a day more relaxingly, you can cover the stretch by public transport like,bus, train or boat.
