Frequently asked questions

All riders must be 16+. Participants are required to sign a waiver/rental agreement. A credit card pre-authorization of $1000 will be taken per group as a deposit. This is completed on-site, we do not take credit card information or payment online.

If your rental period is longer than 24 hours, the pre-authorization will need to be removed by your financial institution which may take 5-7 business days. This is a standard practice set by the credit card issuer and is out of our hands. For rentals returned on the same day, the pre-authorization will be released.

We have 2 locations in Tofino!
Our downtown location is 435 Main Street. Parking is on the corner of 3rd St and Main St behind the district office.
Our second location is in the Surf Grove Campground at the end of Maltby Road. Turn right directly after the Surf Grove Campground entrance gate to find our shop. This gate opens at 09:00am for non-campground guests.

Get here by Tiki Bus, Whistle/Kabu Rideshare App (our version of Uber) or Tofino Taxi. A free shuttle operates in the summer months. Find the annual schedule on the Tourism Tofino website.

The electric assist adds power to your own pedalling, flattening out hills and enabling you to go further – faster. With less impact on the environment and the body, E-Bikes are a popular choice among the ageing community and folks with injuries. If you can pedal, you can operate our bikes. Exploring on 2 wheels has never been easier.

All operators of our E-Bikes must be at least 16 years of age.

No, we are not permitted to deliver. All participants must be present for the safety demonstration and ride the bikes off of the property. We also do not allow guests to transport the bikes in their own vehicles. Please make your way to our location for pick up and drop off.

Dress for weather! You’re in the rainforest after all. Ensure your comfort by wearing close-toed shoes and packing layers for wind and rain. Bring a small backpack for your personal items, water bottle and snacks.

Your E-Bike rental comes with the following complimentary equipment:

⦁ Helmet
⦁ Bike Lock
⦁ Bike Bell
⦁ Map

*If you will be riding at night, please wear a headlamp/bring a bike light. The forested areas are very dark and the path is not lit making it unsafe to access without appropriate safety lights.

Participants are financially responsible for the E-Bike from the time it is released into your possession until it is returned to our location. This includes any loss or damage to the bike outside of regular wear and tear. The rider must have access to secure indoor storage for overnight rentals.

Walk-ins are welcome! However we do highly recommend booking in advance, or you may miss out! We frequently reach capacity during high season. Reserving your E-Bike will also streamline your pick-up and get you cruising faster. Nothing available online? Give us a call to be added to our waitlist. *Overnight and long-term rentals can be booked in person or by emailing us at [email protected]  or tofinoelectricbikessurf[email protected]

Your bikes may be reserved by other guests, therefore they must be returned at the end of your rental period. Having a blast and want to extend your time? Give us a call! We will adjust your reservation if available, otherwise a $30/hour penalty may be charged.

No, we rent only Electric Bikes.

Although uncommon, flats do happen. Do not continue to ride your bike if you encounter a flat. If you’re unable to walk the bike back to our location, give us a call.

The computer on your E-Bike will display your battery level. The more assistance you use, the faster you will exhaust your battery bank. You can conserve by using a lower setting, by pedalling more and turning it off when not in use. If your battery dies, your E-Bike will continue to operate as a normal pedal bike. Keep an eye on your computer and plan accordingly.

Unfortunately our E-Bikes cannot be ridden on the beach. Sand is very damaging to a geared bikes mechanism and could result in a costly malfunction. There are bike racks at each beach so you can safely lock up. For an appropriate beach cruiser, we recommended visiting our friends at Tofino Bike Co.

Due to staffing issues and insurance liability, we are not permitted to work on bikes aside from our fleet. Ukee Bikes in Ucluelet and Tofino Bike Company in the Live to Surf complex do bike repairs and have a great team of bike mechanics. 

The range of E-Bikes varies depending on many factors including the size of the rider and how much power is drawn from the battery. Our E-Bikes have an average range of 65-80km/charge however many guests achieve a higher range by being mindful of battery conservation. Our bikes have the potential to go to Ucluelet and back and beyond. Let us know if you are planning a big trip.
