SpiceRoads Cycling Adds E-Bikes to Fleet in Vietnam and Sri Lanka

SpiceRoads Cycling has added electric bicycles, or e-bikes as they are more commonly know, to its fleet of bicycles in Vietnam and Sri Lanka.

 The e-bikes in Sri Lanka are SCOTT Cross-E Sub 20 bikes, while select Vietnam tours feature Giant Explore E+ bikes.

 The new e-bikes can be hired per tour, as an alternative to standard mountain, road, or carbon bike hire.

Both models of e-bike use “pedal assist” technology, which engages the bike’s motor once the rider begins to pedal. The more the rider pedals, the more the motor is activated, making e-bikes great for tackling climbs or comfortably cruising at speed.

SpiceRoads Managing Director Daniel Moylan said, “The e-bike movement is well underway, and we’re excited to be one of the first tour operators in Asia to provide e-bikes to our clients. At SpiceRoads we believe that cycle travel provides a more authentic, sustainable, and memorable travel experience for our customers and the communities they travel to and interact with. E-bikes allow us to be more inclusive of who is able to join our tours and see the world with us, and we’re very proud of that.”

E-bikes have become popular with commuters in Europe and North America, and they are an attractive option for cycling holidays.

Riders with less experience, lower fitness, recovering from injury, or with less confidence in their abilities can enjoy trips and destinations without worrying about being able to keep up.

 E-bikes are also a great way for cycling enthusiasts to encourage a spouse, family member, or friend who doesn’t ride to join a tour with them.
