Great Tours for eBikes

We allow eBikes on some of our fully supported tours. Only pedal assist or pedal assist with throttle are acceptable forms of eBikes for use. We do not allow any type of eBike on our inn-to-inn, van-supported, educational, or self-contained tours due to the lack of overnight charging stations, mechanical assistance, and/or SAG vehicles on the road. The description page of fully supported tours that allow eBikes will be marked with this icon:

Some fully supported tours do not accept eBikes due to various state and federal regulations prohibiting road/trail usage. Some jurisdictions require special permitting for eBikes, which change frequently, and obtaining necessary eBike permits is the tour participant’s responsibility.

Please check state and federal websites for up-to-date information about restrictions for eBikes for specific jurisdictions.
