Anybody ever rented an e-bike?

Jump to last reply

My understanding is that e-bikes, or electric bikes, are kind of popular in Europe. I'm planning a trip for next April and was thinking about renting e-bikes. We're going to be biking in Holland (yes, actually Holland), so it's not like it's going to be hard biking, but my wife has a bad hip, and I'm just worried that 15 miles of cycling every day might not do her good. We're going to be looking at the tulips, and by bike is just the best way. I figure the e-bike might reduce the load some.

So, here are my questions.

1. Can you ride without peddling at all on the e-bike, or almost without peddling?

2. Do you have any problem recharging the e-bike at night at hotels and such?

3. Are there any problems with using an e-bike?

Thanks!

p.s. I know I am planning this early. I am actually booking hotels and buying tickets and such, and basing my timing in part on what my biking decisions will be.
