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 19 years of age.

Your E-Bike rental comes with the following complimentary equipment:
⦁ Bike Lock
⦁ Bike Bell
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.
*If you will be riding at night, please wear a headlamp. The forested areas are very dark and the path is not lit making it unsafe to access without 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 booking in advance, or you may miss out! We frequently reach capacity during the 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@example.com
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. 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.
Our bikes average 65-80 km per charge. Many guests achieve a higher range too. This varies depending on the size of the rider and how much assist is used. Being mindful of battery conservation will allow you to ride to Ucluelet and back, which can be done in the 8 hour rental period.
