The bad attitude toward e-bikes is pretty unfair. A lot of mountain bikers think they’re dirt bikes in disguise, or that you’re not really doing anything while riding them. Not only are both of those perceptions wildly wrong, but they’re totally underestimating an e-bike’s potential.
Let’s say you only have a week to explore British Columbia’s best riding destinations. Rather than scale back your plans, an e-bike can help you really get to know a place. Don’t just take it from us, but from R-Dog and Kathi Kuypers who took the Trek Rail for a whirlwind road trip in B.C. From the looks of it, they’re having a grand ol’ time.
