About

Come experience Skyline Drive like never before.  Enjoy the freedom of the open road.  Have a front row seat to the sights and sounds of nature.  Feel the wind in your hair.  There is nothing quite like riding an electric bike through the heart of one of the most picturesque National Parks in America.

We started offering electric bike tours to make biking accessible to more park visitors.  Riding a bike along Skyline Drive offers a new and exciting way for people to connect with nature.  This is meant to be a leisurely ride with stops at all of the scenic overlooks along the route.  You will hear about the history of the park, and hopefully see some of the wonderful wildlife.  Take a look at all of the available 2021 tour dates, and give us a call or send us a message if you have any questions prior to booking.

FAQS

You’ve Got Questions — We’ve Got Answers

IS IT HARD TO RIDE AN ELECTRIC BIKE?

It's just like riding a bike.  If you know how to ride a regular bicycle, you know how to ride an electric bike.

DO I HAVE TO BE IN GREAT SHAPE TO TAKE THIS TOUR?

No, but you will have to do a little pedaling up the hills.  Electric bikes are designed to assist the rider, so you'll be able to ride faster and farther than you would a regular bicycle.  Even the mountainous terrain of Skyline Drive is accessible to most riders with the assistance of an electric motor.

HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO RIDE AN ELECTRIC BIKE?

Anyone who can ride a bicycle can ride an electric bike.  To take this tour, we recommend children no younger than 14 due to the size of the bikes.  The bikes are designed for riders 5'1"-6'4" tall and no more than 275 pounds.
