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!

I never thought riding a bike again was going to be this exciting. using an electric bike would be as fun as it was. Our bike guides were knowledgeable about the area, funny, and very experienced. All of the staff there were very helpful and so nice! We had an amazing time! Perfect!

There was a group of 4 of us for the easy riverside trip. It was incredible! Our guides were great at working with us when giving instructions and were super knowledgeable about the region. We will definitely be back.
