As a seasoned biker I did not think highly about e-bikes. 40 km with Thierry and my 15 and 12 year old kids changed it. I had fun on the trails I could never enjoy with my younger one on regular bikes. Eco mode offsets the extra weight of an e-bike and to keep up in this mode with someone in Sport mode going uphill is a good work-out. And Thierry made the trip special - without him we would not have found the amazing trails with different levels of difficulties and connecting roads with hardly any traffic. If you are for a family fun, try e-bikes with Thierry.

We did this trip on a sunny day and made a great bike ride through a hilly landscape with a lot of nice views (lake, castle, snowy mountains, ..)... We enjoyed the roads with little traffic, and don't worry the electrical motor will help you on the slopes :)

Thierry is very friendly (and patient) and gave us sufficient advice and equipment.
At the end of the trip we were offered a beer :D

My boyfriend and I are so happy that we found Vulcabike on our vacation in the mountains. The owner/guide Thierry, with a lot of love for the cycling sport, was very service minded and made our session fantastic. Fortunately, he was able to not only guide us the first 30 minutes, but ride with us and guide us up and down the mountains for hours. We experienced some rain and strong wind, but it didn't not bring us down, it just made it a little bit more challenging and we fought harder together uphill. :) We stopped at a honey producer on the way back to the town which was nice.

I would recommend everyone to go see Thierry and rent a bike. The electric bike enables you to cover more distance which is great if you as a tourist like me want to see as much as possible while getting a great workout. I would definitely go back.

Enjoy your cycling vacation up north Thierry!
