A Beginner's Guide to flying up the hills!
Electric bikes are amazing to cycle! With an electric bike, going uphill is just like cycling on flat or level terrain. Electric bikes are great for people who have injuries, older people or people who want to go further. Find yourself struggling to keep up with a friend or partner who is a serious cyclist? An e-bike is a great solution! Or if you're on vacation and want to explore with the wind in your hair but don't want to slog uphill - rent an electric bike.
Wild Atlantic Sports are the only company offering e-bikes in Kinsale. Our new fleet of electric bikes are 'pedal assist' - that means that the power kicks in only when you are pedalling. Going too fast, simply stop pedalling and the motor will turn off.
Why Go Electric?
How do I use an electric bike?
Electric bikes are really easy to use. They have most of the same features as a usual bike. The main difference is the onboard computer mounted on the bike's handlebars and the battery which is usually mounted to the frame of the bike. The onboard computer allows you to control the power of your bike as well as see useful facts and figures such as your speed and most importantly how many kilometres of power you have left!
Most electric bikes will have a number of different power levels. Pick a low level/eco level if you are just cruising on the flat and need a little help. Heading up a steep hill, just up the level to turbo to increase the power. With just the press of a button, you'll feel just like you are cycling on the level. What's not to love?
