How Fast Will We Go?

We have built our trips to optimize fun and to keep safety first in mind. Each E-Mountain Bike Tour has a lead guide that will set the pace of the trip. Participants are asked to not pass the Lead Guide so we can scout for potential hazards and keep the group as safe as possible. All trips utilize a pedal-assited E-Mountain bike and can range in speeds from 0 to 20 mph on it's own power, faster on descents. Each participant must feel capable to ride, at speed, safely.

Great e bike tour! We had such a great e bike adventure! I would highly recommend French Broad Adventures. Jake and Tom were excellent guides- very safety conscious and very knowledgeable about the bikes and the area where we toured. The ride was beautiful- along a river and we saw 2 incredible waterfalls as well. Jake and Tom gave great instruction prior to the ride and were so patient and fun to be with! The e bikes are a blast!
