Cycling around Summit County is a spectacular way to see the lake and surrounding mountains, zip through traffic, and park anywhere.
However, Summit’s hilly terrain can be quite a challenge, even for the experienced cyclist. For that reason many people are deterred from booking a bicycle tour and miss this opportunity.
Riding a pedal assist electric motor changes the game. Hills are no longer a dreaded sight but rather an empowering experience!
Basically, the electric assist motor matches the effort you put into your pedals, you become super-human! The catch is, if you don’t pedal you don’t go anywhere! Each bike has three pedal assist levels that you will learn to use effectively from your tour guide.
