WHAT IS AN EBIKE?
For those of you who do not already know, an eBike is a bicycle where the rider’s pedaling is assisted by a small electric motor. However, unlike some other types of eBikes with throttles on the handle bar to control the electric motor, our eBikes are classified as conventional bicycles rather than as a type of electric moped.

Our eBikes include an electronic controller which cuts power to the motor when the rider is not pedaling or when a certain speed has been reached (in Canada 32 km/h). eBikes are useful for anyone who wants to get out and ride a bicycle again, but lack the power and stamina to complete a bike ride with long hill sections or strong head winds.

If you have mobility issues or simply feel like going for a long bike ride is a daunting task, an eBike is for you!

EBIKES AND RIVER VALLEY TOURS
As a newly established “Friends of WSAC” member, Revolution Cycle is pleased to announce that we will be providing free eBike demonstrations as well as reduced senior rates for our eBike river valley tours and discounts on bicycles/eBikes from our store.

Watch for details!
