By choosing an e-bike cycling holiday, riders can now go further, faster, and see more than ever! The world of active travel is changing fast, and a lot of that has to do with the electric bicycle rising in popularity. Originally, electric bikes were used for commuting around busy cities to avoid traffic, but now it has become an increasingly popular way of travel for active explorers, particularly for destinations that are difficult to reach or navigate by car or will take too long walking by foot. There is nothing quite like exploring a new place on two wheels, so active adventurers of all abilities can ride together with ease.
Adventure cycling with Exodus has never been more accessible, with many of our self-guided bike itineraries across Europe and further afield now offering the option to travel by e-bike! You can go at your own pace while exploring new cities and cultures all while seeing all the sights, weaving through parks and scenic trails. An e-bike trip is a great option if your partner, friends, or family are not avid biking enthusiasts. Cyclists with joint and muscle pain, or who have stopped biking long-distance or rough terrain for many reasons, have found a renewed opportunity by jumping on an electric bike. With the battery-powered ‘pedal assist’ to give you a boost when you need it, bicycle travel is as comfortable as possible. Not only can you explore at a faster pace, meaning you can visit more highlights, but you can also soak up the incredible scenery along the way. Discover lesser-known sights and immerse yourself in cultural experiences as you set off on the ride of a lifetime without breaking a sweat.
Consecutive days on the saddle are not for everyone, and we get that, so our specialists found a way to integrate e-bike travel into the award-winning Exodus tours you love, and some new e-bike holidays – with less physical strain. Our premium adventure Cycling Portugal’s Atlantic Coast is a very comfortable ride if you opt to go by electric bikes. Riding through Porto in style and having the energy you need to enjoy the beauty and vibrancy of Lisbon, “the city of seven hills”.
Looking to go electric in Asia? Opt for an electric bike on our Cycling Vietnam tour. Riding from vibrant Saigon in the south to the electrifying capital of Hanoi in the north, you will pass through colourful fishing villages, folding rice terraces, and vast shorelines of white sandy beaches along the way.
Experience pure La Dolce Vita riding along the back roads of Italy on our Tuscany Cycle Siena & Chianti adventure! The Tuscan landscape is one of the most evocative and romantic in Europe with cypress trees lining the roads, olive groves, vineyards, ancient hill-top towns, and classic Renaissance cities. Taste succulent Italian cuisine and sink into the relaxed pace of life in Italy, with the help of pedal assistance on an e-bike so you can enjoy more time to unwind after your ride with a glass of wine in hand!
Another reason we love e-bike travel at Exodus, is because it’s another form of transportation for our adventurers to enjoy that is 100% emission-free. If you’d like to find out more about our commitment to sustainable travel click here.
On the majority of our group cycling trips, a support vehicle accompanies the riders. These carry tools and spares, refreshments, luggage, and even (on occasion) yourself. We also offer 24/7 support by phone if you have any difficulty with switching gears, or if you get a flat tire. Rest assured we’re here to answer any questions or concerns you may have on our small group or self-guided adventures on two wheels.
All our adventure cycling trips are graded by level of difficulty, with the percentage of on- and off-road riding and the amount of vehicle support you will have, to help you find your perfect match. If you need a little more assistance on steep hill climbs or want to keep your vacation a little more relaxed, consider choosing an e-bike and discover routes locals love on your next Exodus adventure!
