The bicycle used during the visit
All of our tours include an e-bike (pedelec). Each bike is provided with a rear pannier of 15L capacity and a helmet.
This open frame bike is by definition easy to ride. Its high handlebars allow to keep the back quite straight. It is perfectly adapted to asphalt roads and can also be used on vineyard paths.
It has a luggage rack allowing you to store your belongings in the panniers provided for this purpose.
