What is an Ebike?

An ebike is classified as a bicycle. Ebikes have a small motor that assists the rider's pedal-power.


Do you rent regular pedal bikes?
 
No. 


Are there paved trails to ride?

Yes.  The spectacular Niagara River Recreational Trail is 53 km long and runs from Fort George to Fort Erie.

No.  You must come to our shop to be properly fitted for the ebike and helmet.


Are there charging stations along the route?

No. 


Can I take an extra battery with me?
 
Yes. It is $40 to take an extra battery-to-go.


Can I cross into the USA?

No.


Does pedaling recharge the battery?
 
No.


Can I take a ebike charger to go?

No.


How far can I go on a battery?

Your ebike will have a fully charged battery, when you start your ride.

Based on a weight of 170 lbs the distance is 30+ km with no pedaling (only thumb throttle), 60+ KM with light pedaling (pedal assist level 2 to 3) and 80+ KM with normal pedaling (pedal assist level 1 to 2).

Battery range depends on weight, riding conditions (wind, hills, bumps), distance and the number of times you stop and go.

 

Do the bikes have a phone mount?

No. If you are an advanced rider, you are welcome to bring your own.


Does the bike have mirrors?

No. You need fluid head movement, the same as a regular bike. 

If you wish to bring a mirror that is fine.


Do you have different sizes and styles of saddles?

Yes. We are confident that we can fit you with a good seat.


Can I ride in the rain?  

Yes. However, upon request, we issue a full refund due to inclement weather.
