Great Tours for eBikes

Class 1 eBikes are allowed on some of our fully supported and inn-to-inn tours. Class 1 eBikes are pedal assisted to a max of 20 mph and do not have a throttle. Class 2 or Class 3 eBikes are not allowed on any of our tours. We don’t allow any type of eBike on our van-supported or self-contained tours (including our Intro courses) due to the lack of overnight charging stations, mechanical assistance, and/or SAG vehicles on the road. 

Tours that allow eBikes will be marked with this icon:

Some inn-to-inn and fully supported tours do not accept eBikes due to distances, elevations, and road surfaces involved. Additionally, various state and federal regulations prohibit eBike usage on some roads and trails that these tours use. 

Some tours allow, but require special permitting for eBikes. Obtaining necessary eBike permits is the tour participant’s responsibility. Please check state and federal websites for up-to-date information about restrictions for e-bikes for specific jurisdictions.

Because every rider, eBike, road condition, and elevation profile is different, it is ultimately up to the participant to judge best whether their battery will last through each tour day. We recommend using pedal assist in its lowest setting or off when not needed to maximize battery range. Bringing a second battery is also recommended. They can be carried by staff on our fully supported events, but will need to be carried by the participant on our inn-to-inn trips.
