E-bikes

We offer e-bike tours for those who require. Taking the decision to choose for an e-bike instead of a regular bicycle can have so many reasons and we can assure you, it has its advantages. Sri Lanka has mountains in the centre of the island, and they offer some of the most scenic views of the country, in other words, you wouldn’t like to miss it out.

Many visitors underestimate the distances to do in order to see their wished sights. The tricky part isn’t the distance, but the climate and hilly roads. On top of that, whenever you like to visit a historical Buddhist temple, most of them are located on top of a rock, and there’s no elevator to take you up there… Many factors influence your endurance what looks an easy ride on “Google Maps”.

We recommend e-bikes who like to enjoy more of the cultural sights apart from the cycling part without losing the charms of being in the open air.

We can offer both e-mountain-bikes and e-city-bikes. The e-mountain-bikes are good for a whole tour as the e-city-bikes are recommended for a city day tour. Please find our e-bike specs under following link.

 

Some Frequently asked questions:

How do e-bikes work?

Electric bikes are just like regular bicycles. They pedal and handle just the same. The electric component of an e-bike is meant to augment human power, not completely replace it. Obstacles like hills and headwind will be made more manageable and allows you to travel further without getting as tired.

How old do you have to be to ride an e-bike?

14 years old with 5 years of recent bike experience

How tall do you have to be to ride an e-bike?

Minimum size: 5 feet, 3 inches tall

Minimum size: 1 meter 60 cm

How far can you cycle with an e-bike?

Impossible to put a precise number on that. Influencing factors can be: how much do you pedal before your battery dies? Your weight. How steep are the roads you climb?

For tours we recommend having 2 batteries per e-bike. For a city day tour, 1 battery should do.

What if the battery dies?
There are different options: You can pedal the rest of your trail or you can replace the battery with a fully charged battery.

Once at your accommodation you will be able to charge your battery for the next day.
