E-bikes in Loire, Provence and Languedoc!
An innovative French touring company, Discover France, is taking the pain out of the gain when cycling up inclines. Guests now may partake of a new adventure travel trend, using hybrid electric bicycles with easy-to-charge battery motors.
“E-bike technology is finally both good enough and affordable for us to invest in this equipment,” said Loren Siekman, Discover France director. “Couples often aren’t compatible endurance-wise when combining bikes and hills. E-bikes help level the cycling field by giving a boost to a cyclist concerned about not keeping up or slowing others down.”
To date e-bikes in small, medium and large models are available for both guided and self-guide tours of the Loire, Provence and Languedoc regions. The rental rate is slightly more than for regular hybrid bike rentals. The e-bike in use is the new Scott e-Venture 30, a model easily charged while sipping a glass of wine during a rest stop somewhere along the route in France. http://www.discoverfrance.com/rental-bikes-scott-eventure.php
