My husband and I love Pedago electric bikes! You are able to go further and see so much more on an EBike than a traditional cruiser. Asheville offers beautiful bike trails. We explored the UNC Asheville campus hills and with the boost were easy to...More

Torin was a great teacher to us new to E-bikes, and a knowledgable guide. We enjoyed the tour, and the bike experience. A great introduction to Asheville, along with a lot of great recommendations for restaurants and other ways to experience the city.

A fun, zippy tour of the highlights of Asheville. The e-bikes have a lot of pep, so there isn't much real labor--which is good, given all the hills. Torin is a great guide, and there was a lot to see. Highly recommended!
