Like many things in life, ebiking can be a fun activity for a group! Gather a few friends or the whole family for some gentle exercise and time outdoors. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your group e-biking.
Communicate about the ride before setting off. Having quick discussion before group ebiking helps set expectations that ensure a good time for all. Decide the route, the pace, and the length so everyone is ready to set off together.
Be predictable and smooth while riding. Electric bikes are great for those of all skill levels due to the helpful pedal assist to help out on hills and longer rides. While group ebiking, it’s important to avoid sudden movements to prevent startling others and to keep up with the collective pace so no one is busy looking behind them. Keeping a reasonable pace will help to keep everyone together so try to not slow down or surge forward without communicating.
Stay aware of your surroundings. While group ebiking, it can be easy to get lost in a great conversation and be less focused on spotting potential hazards like potholes and parked cars. Along the ride, be sure to pay attention to surroundings to recognize these dangers and to help guide the group around them for a smooth and safe group ebiking experience.
