Welcome to the eBike Touring web site.

There's lots of information here about the rides we've done on our eBikes - routes, trails, GPS tracks, where to stay, where to eat, and more. You can browse the various categories in the menu above, or search for keywords like a town, a province or a geographical feature.

We’ve been riding mountain bikes for 30 years. And loving it. Recently friends of ours suggested eBikes as a new way to have the most unbelievable fun, but be careful they said. One, you’ll sell your adventure bike (we’ve been riding motorbikes for years) and two, it will change your lives in ways you can’t imagine.

Yes, we did sell our motorbike (we had stopped using it) and yes our lives did change!

Hope you have as much fun as we have riding these routes.
