The half-day e-bike rental is pricier than a standard bike, but it's well worth it in the Alpilles. Yes, it may be "cheating", but hey - we're on vacation after all! Our ride from St-Remy center to Les Baux and back was smooth sailing, and we've passed some unfortunate bikers who were ready to give up three quarters of the way there because of the steep grade. The area to the East of St Remy is well worth exploring also (Chapelle of St Sixte, and the village of Eygalieres).
The staff at the rental office spoke good English and let us try the bikes out before we were ready to commit. It helps to have a topo-map of the area, which you can get for a few euros at the Tourist Office.
