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 participants must be over 16 years of age to operate a motor-assisted cycle by law in the province of BC. All riders under 19 years of age must be accompanied by an adult who is also renting in the group. A drivers licence is not required to operate an Electric Bike.
By law, all participants must be at least 16 to operate an E-Bike and all riders under 19 must be accompanied by an adult. All participants will be required to sign a waiver, rental agreement and provide a copy of valid ID in the event of an accident or theft. A credit card pre-authorization of $1000 will be taken per group.
*Please note* 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.*
Your E-bike rental comes with the following complimentary equipment:
⦁ Bike Lock
⦁ Bike Bell
⦁ Water bottle holder
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 or rent one of our convenient bike bags. Also, if you will be riding past sunset, please bring a headlamp.
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! But we do highly recommend to book in advance, or you may miss out. Reserving your E-Bike will also streamline your pick-up and get you cruising faster. Our sunset special and overnight rates are available in person only.
Bikes must be returned at the time determined at the time of rental. If you return your E-Bike late, you will be charged $30 per bike, per hour. Having a blast and want to extend your rental period? Give us a call to check availability, and we will adjust your reservation.
No, we rent only Electric Bikes.
Although uncommon, flats do happen. Do not continue to ride your bike if you encounter a flat and make your way back to us. If you are past the town limit and transit zone, give us a call. A $20 parts and labour fee will be charged to repair a flat tire.
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.
