Today e-bikes (electric-assist bikes) are in high demand, according to Backroads. While many travelers prefer regular “acoustic” bikes, traveling companions of different fitness and biking abilities are increasingly discovering that e-bikes not only help level the playing field, they also provide a boost when needed to help conquer hills. Not to mention, they’re just plain fun!

“Health and fitness have always been a big part of my life and factor into the design of every Backroads trip,” said Backroads Founder and President, Tom Hale. “Whether it’s hiking, biking, taking it slow on a Dolce Tempo trip or traveling with family, the desire to be active on vacation is definitely not a new trend, just a growing one. Backroads has been helping people actively discover the world for 43 years, and we look forward to doing so for many more.”
