E-biking Tips...

  1. Control your speed and brake softly - learning to control your speed is key to becoming a competent rider
  2. Start off slowly and get used to the extra power - e-bikes are heavier than normal bikes. If you set off too quickly in turbo mode the bike might wheelie and throw you off!
  3. Don't forget to use the gears - it may sound obvious but e-bikes are just like normal bikes. Many first time e-bikers don't use the gears because they think that the motor does all the work
  4. Pedal gently when changing gear - if you put in a heavy pedal stroke while changing gear it can cause the chain to get stuck. Pedal gently for a smooth gear change
  5. Stand up when riding downhill keeping one pedal in front (strongest foot forward) and look ahead - looking ahead makes you aware of upcoming obstacles and gives you time to prepare for them
