What is an electric bicycle?
An electric bicycle looks and feels just like a normal bicycle. If you know how to ride a normal bicycle, you will have no problem riding an electric one. The only difference is that an electric bicycle is powered by a battery that helps you pedal, thereby allowing you to climb a steep hill with barely having to exert any power. In short, an effortless and utterly pleasant experience!
Who can use an electric bike?
Anyone who knows how to ride a bicycle. Your guide will explain you how to use the gear box. A short test of 10 meters and 4 rounds of pedals is enough to understand that it is very easy.
Are the bike rides safe?
Security is a very important point for us. Our groups never exceed 8 people. Although Greek law does not require it, we recommend wearing a helmet provided by us. Your guide will brief you ,before leaving, all about safety for a perfect stroll!
However, you must know that some parts of the ride are on the road open to traffic, and you will scrupulously follow the instructions of your guide for safety.
How can I book an ebike tour?

What is the start time for the tours?
Our tours have a standart start time 10:00 am, with an earlier free pick up arranged by us. We also have some special tours that start in the evening, such as The Sunset tour and if you wish a late hour Food tour.

What if I haven’t biked in many years?
Our tours require basic riding ability and fitness and your guide will set a very relaxed pace. Expect to ride for a maximum of 15 – 20 minutes at a time between breaks. We make every effort to cater to the slowest rider in the group, but keep in mind that we have to try to keep our schedule on time. We stop regularly for information, and photo ops. Your tour leader will go over general group riding etiquette so that everyone rides safely, and you can come early to practice on our bikes to get comfortable before departure.
Please Note: For custom or group tours, if your group would like to ride further or faster, just let your tour leader know and we can pick up the pace!
