I heard about eBikes in Europe for the first time. When I decided to do a trip to Waiheke Island with my son, I really wanted to see the whole Island by bike. The tar sealed part of the island is only small, therefore it´s no point coming by car in my opinion. On the other hand, there are some hills going from beach to beach and winery to winery. And a bike with a motor supporting me (as a not so fit person) just seemed perfect! Especially as I needed to bring up the "Horse Power" to ride my little son through the mountains, too.

I got in contact with the business and he organized to pick me up from the ferry terminal. I came on a later ferry than planed and send him a text - I still got picked up. Very flexible and friendly, eager to enable me to have a nice trip!

Once at the eBikes, I had everything explained to me, which is not much at all. Just hop on, start paddling, and as you paddle the bike turns on a little electric motor which supports you accordingly to the setting. You can choose to get lots of support and turn it down through many steps all the way to no support. The battery lasts a long time. I went about 3 times through the island with support most of the way and still had some power left.

When I go to Waiheke Island again, this eBike will definitely be my choice of transport!
