You ride an electric bike in exactly the same way as a pedal bike. The difference is that when you pedal, the motor kicks in to help you. There are various motor settings so it is possible to cycle without making any effort at all. Alternatively, you can switch the motor off and ride your bike conventionally. The bike also has a throttle that can be engaged to help at specific times, for example when setting off quickly at a junction.
Before you set off on your tour we will give you a demonstration and safety brief. We will make sure the bike is the right size for you and adjust the saddle so that you are comfortable. There is space to try the bike before you go on the road. Within a few minutes you will be ready to set off but we will help anyone who needs a bit of extra support understanding the controls.
