E Bike Tours:

For the last few years there has been a huge rise in the number of manufacturers offering ebikes, and most recently the newer integrated medium/long travel eMTB. These new breed of e bikes has allowed us to access even more trails and valleys further afield, suddenly undulating ridgeline trails, technical climbs and even lung busting climbs are now fun!!

For 2018 Rivierabike will be offering ebike tours on a long weekend or weekly basis, our packages will include the hire of Specialized Levo ebikes

  • 795€ - 1045€
  • Inc ebike hire *

Tour Description:

Based in Molini the tour will run in a similar vein to our AM/Enduro tour however we will focus on the strengths of ebikes which is its ability to tackle undulating ridgelines and accessing peaks and remote valleys and trails which However we will also ride many of the famous trails that Molini has to offer as well as the coastal trails of Sanremo and Diano Marina which are perfectly geared up for ebiking.

Our ebike trips are geared up for all abilities, whether you’re someone who feels you don’t have the physical ability to climb an alpine peak to someone who relishes steep challenging trails or if you’re just ebike curious and thinking of buying one, we can tailor the trip to exactly to your requirements and abilities.

The days usually start’s with a shuttle which will take us to the end of the asphalt roads, and from here on we start riding. The climbs will be a mixture of fireroads as well as singletrack which is great fun on ebikes. A climb which can take over an hour on a normal bike will be made in half the time which means more time on the trails. And don’t be put off by the weight of ebikes, they ride equally well if better on all types of trails. To ensure we get a full day on the bikes we will make use of our lunch stops to re charge the batteries which will allow us to go further and ride longer.

E bikes require a different style of riding and techniques as well as electronic controls and settings. We will provide free advice on how to use these controls as well as bike handling and climbing techniques.

You will stay in either a well-appointed village house or the local Santo Spirito Hotel which has been in the same family for over a hundred years. Rooms are based on two sharing and at the hotel they are all en-suite.

The restaurant at the hotel is locally famed for its traditional food and huge portions. Breakfast is of a continental style with plenty of coffee to start the day. After a day’s riding you will sit down to a traditional Ligurian and locally sourced four course dinner and complimentary wine or beer to replenish those calories.

As part of our ebike tours, the hire of a 2018 Specialized TURBO LEVO FSR COMP is included in the package cost. The Levo benefits from the powerful Brose 1.3 250 watt motor and a 504 Wh battery coupled with the new handlebar remote, gives great control and range. Together with great looks and impressive kit combining a 150mm RockShox Revelation RC fork with SRAM Guide RE brakes and a SRAM one-by groupset, the Levo is the perfect ebike for our terrain.

Sizes available, Small, Medium and Large.
