Be amongst the first to test these all terrain electric bikes!

If you like bike riding, but Chamonix’s hills sometimes get the better of you, this is a perfect option.

With a maximum autonomy of 150 km, and a basket which can carry 25 kg of luggage, you can plan a great day’s outing ! The bikes are available for hire from the different tourist offices in the Chamonix Valley (Chamonix, Les Houches, Vallorcine and Servoz) but they do have to be returned to the same pick up point, so you can’t pedal to Geneva and leave them!

The cost per 24 hours hire is 10 euros, and can be renewed only once as numbers are limited.
These electric bikes have 5 modes (from economy to sport), depending on how hard or how little you pedal. The minimum autonomy is 30 km if you are making full use of the battery and maximum is 150 km when in economy mode.

Some suggested bike routes will be supplied at the time of bike hire. These bikes are designed for paths, easy trails and road riding.
Available for hire for adults and juniors from 15 years of age (minors have to be accompanied by an adult).

Enquiries at the tourist office of your choice. A refundable credit card deposit will be taken at the time of hire.
