They are not motorcycles or have an accelerator, if you do not give pedals, the bikes do not ride, but their simple operation from a control panel on the handlebars, make them suitable for all audiences. In addition, all its routes -with or without a certified MTB guide-, are cataloged to be done by ebike and by difficulty, which allows more distance, more unevenness and overcome more technical difficulties for cyclists or users of all levels. They have services such as the “Taxi Bike”, a vehicle and a car prepared to transport up to seven bicycles, people and luggage, wherever necessary; a hotel, rural accommodation, or at the beginning and end of the route.
