With more than 2,000,000 visitors annually, Whistler, British Columbia is one of the premier resort destinations in the Pacific Northwest. This 3-hour guided e-bike tour offers a safe and convenient way to experience the incredible scenery without venturing too far away from the comforts and amenities the area has to offer. E-bikes are a new, environmentally friendly form of transportation offering all the capability of a modern bicycle but with an electric motor to assist in climbing hills or increasing speed. Each e-bike allows the rider to choose just how much of an assist they want, making it an ideal option for groups of varying capabilities.
The tour starts near a downtown shopping center behind a local pub. After taking a moment to familiarize yourself with the electric bike and its operation, you will don your helmet and begin your exploration through 400-year-old cedar forest, past the gently flowing Fitzimmons Creek comprised of glacial run-off, across alpine ecosystems, and end up at the monumental Olympic Celebration Plaza built for the 2010 Winter Games.
Throughout the ride, your knowledgeable guide will fill you in on the all the best places to eat, drink, explore, and stay safe while you look for bears and stop for photographs of the pristine snow capped peaks surrounding you. Depending on the time of day, the trip includes a stop for pastries and deserts at a delicious local bakery.
