Can I ride an e-bike ?
Yes, the club has a handful of riders who regularly ride electric bikes, and they are welcomed. Most of the club’s rides will require a certain type of bike (road bike, hybrid bike, mountain bike, etc), and your e-bike should be of the same type as stated for that particular ride.
For example, if a ride requires a mountain bike then showing up with an electrically-assisted touring bike will be impractical, it won’t cope well with the rough terrain and the gears won’t be low enough to tackle bumpy sections.
