E-Bike Cycling Holidays

Freewheel Holidays are aiming to become the first E-Bike Cycling Holidays specialist in the UK. Working with our partners throughout Europe, many of our 2020 tours will have E-Bike upgrades as an option.

E-Bikes are great as they give you electric assistance on the cycle tours which means you can ride easily on the tours and keep you motivated! The bikes that are used are often unisex and suitable for both men and women to use.

Driving licences are not required and the electric bike assists until a speed of 25 km/h is reached. Handling the bike is easy and after a while you do not realise there is a battery powered motor assisting you.

The system used on most of the electric bikes that we rent out are pedelecs and provide support only when pedalling. The frames are based on KTM designs and weigh around 23 kg. The bikes incorporate an illuminated LCD display that provides detailed ride analysis. There are different modes available ranging from ECO to Sport options.

These bikes use powered support through an electric motor. The motor is fixed in the bottom bracket. Removable batteries give you a range of about 80 kilometres. You can also charge your battery at the hotel too as it detaches from the bike and plugs into the mains like a laptop computer or mobile phone.

Sizes available: 56 / 51 / 46 / 46 "xs" cm

Upgrade prices: Prices to upgrade from a hybrid bike to an electric bike vary though generally start from £99 for the holiday duration.

Important: Please note that some e-bikes that we rent out use BOTH rear pedal brakes and hand-operated brakes. The electric bike model above will only be available on selected holidays. Other bikes will be provided depending on the operator of the requested cycling holiday.
