E-bikes are becoming more and more popular. Especially in the vast Engadin, the advantages of electric bikes are numerous: more fun in a group, generous laps in the evening, long discovery tours during the day, and more time to discover the diverse valley.
Trails that are fun on a mountain bike are generally also easy to ride on an e-mountain bike: The Albula Trail, for example, is perfect for your first single trail experience. You can also ride down the flow trails on Corviglia with your e-mountain bike. And on the wide-ranging natural roads of the Engadin valley floor in the many side valleys or on the Inn bike path from Maloja to Martina, you can go on discovery tours for days.
For example, a trip into the beautiful side valleys is recommended; the roads in the fairytale Val Bever or in the idyllic Val Fex are as if they are made for e-bikes. Those who want to be on the road a little longer can take the route from St. Moritz to Maloja and marvel at the unique scenery of the lake district with the surrounding mountain peaks on the way.
Can every cyclist ride an e-bike? Not necessarily. The extra weight of the electric drive changes the bike's center of gravity and thus its handling. And the extra speed requires more attention and longer braking distances. So it's worth taking a riding technique course; our bike guides will be happy to teach you the necessary know-how.
E-bikes can be rented in many hotels and sports shops.
According to the Swiss Road Traffic Act (SVG), children under the age of 14 are not allowed to ride an e-bike. Children from 14 to 16 years of age may rent and use e-bikes up to 25km/h upon presentation of a valid moped ID.
