Electric Bikes

Electric bikes are like a regular bike, with the difference of it having an electric motor. Electric bikes are capable of doing everything a normal bike can do and more. The adult e-bikes will assist you up to 15.5 mph and any speed past that point will be up to your leg power alone. With the bike assisting you as you pedal you won’t have the problem of cycling up hills or against the wind. You will be able to cycle longer distances without getting as tired or sweaty at the end of it. They are great for exploring Shapinsay and being able to enjoy the Island more since you won’t be huffing and puffing so much! They are road bikes so don’t use them off road because you will damage them.
