Mountain bike travel company H+I Adventures is launching a new calendar of electric mountain bike (eMTB) tours for 2020, with departure dates available from May through October. Each tour is eight to 12 days in length. The tours do not include airfare.

“We recognized early on that emountain biking is different from traditional mountain biking and could not just be ‘bolted on’ to our existing adventures without compromise,” said Euan Wilson, CEO of H+I Adventures. “We wanted to take time to learn as much as we could about emountain bikes, eMTB riders, and travel by eMTB, and we’ve designed these new tours to allow riders to join the next ‘e-volution’ of mountain bike travel.”

In a release, H+I stated that the new tours avoid trails where lifting or carrying a bike would be required or where there are substantial river crossings. The tours also factor in battery life and charging time. H+I said it has selected destinations where electric mountain biking is already popular, with access to ebike rentals and guides with eMTB experience.

“Among the growing number of emountain bike fans are many of our guides, so it made sense to craft the first of our eMTB adventures in those destinations where our guides had the most experience,” Wilson said.
