Experience electric bikes - different and fun way to see Valdez
Let's make some memories!
Are you looking for a different and fun way to see Valdez?
Rent an electric bike for a unique experience of exploring Valdez on a very stable bike with added power of the motor. Visit local trails, ride around town, visit Valdez Glacier and Historic Old Town while enjoying fresh air and breathtaking scenery. E-bike allows everyone to ride together no matter the fitness level, cover more distance and make hills a breeze.
What is an e-bike you might ask?
Imagine a regular bicycle, then add several electrical components to it like a small motor, a battery, and an LCD display – all seamlessly integrated into the design. Electric bikes pedal and handle just like a regular bicycle. The electric component is meant to supplement human power, not to completely replace it. It makes obstacles like hills and headwind a breeze and allows you to travel further without getting tired. It also adds a big non-stop smile to your face!
There’s something that happens every time someone tries one of Rad ebikes for the first time. Even if they’re nervous, skeptical, or flat-out convinced that an electric bike just isn’t for them, they can’t help but break into a smile the moment they start their test ride.
We see this so often that our folks gave it its own name: The RadGrin.
Discover why for yourself.
