E-Bike? How does this work?
An E-Bike is a regular bicycle with pedals, but it is equipped with an e-motor and a battery. You pedal like on a regular bicycle, but once you start pedaling, the e-motor kicks in and gives you a extra-boost. Once you stop pedaling the e-motor stops and you just roll. You can demand the motor power with a little button on the handle bar.
Via this little button you can choose between different assistance levels, from no assist to very strong support. The support completely stops if you exceed the speed of 25km/h, so you will never be accelerated “endlessly”.
Please be aware that E-Bikes are forbidden by Swiss law for people under 12 years of age.
We rent this E-cargo bike only to adults with kids. The kids can weigh up to 60 kgs together.

Do I need a reservation or can I just come by?
Of course you can just come to our shop and try to rent the bike/s you want. We have a huge selection of bicycles and usually we have availability. But it can happen during peak times that the bicycles you need are already rented out. So if you want to play safe, it’s always better to request the desired bicycles.
For the cargo e-bike we definitely recommend a reservation.
