SURREY, ENGLAND, April 11, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/
-- If you've not been on a bike for years, or you're simply unsure as to whether you're up to a traditional cycling holiday, then why not consider an electric version?
Electric bikes, or e-bikes, work just like normal ones - the only real difference being that when you pedal, the battery automatically kicks in and your power is increased by up to 80%! So you can cover almost twice the distance with half the effort - sheer genius!
At the end of the day, you simply lift the battery off the bike and leave it on charge with your mobile phone, iPod, etc.
For summer 2010, e-bikes will only be available on our Swiss Lakes Cycling holiday
. The lakeside routes are perfect for gentle cycling and, as such, are ideal for customers new to this kind of holiday. All e-bikes come equipped with a battery (and a spare battery), a charger and panniers as standard. As with all our cycling holidays
, helmets are strongly recommended, but are not compulsory and are not provided.
The hire of an e-bike will be charged at a supplement of GBP169 over the standard price of the 8-night Swiss Lakes Cycling holiday
, irrespective of date of departure. It is perfectly okay for some party members to opt for an e-bike, others for a traditional bike, however e-bikes are only available to over 16s. Please note: as we only have a limited number of e-bikes available, early booking is strongly advised.
