We tried the e-bikes in Levanto as soon as they arrived and we loved them!
Electric bicycles, also known as e-bikes or booster bikes, have an integrated small electric on-demand motor to assist the rider’s pedal power.
The motor is activated by a handlebar-mounted throttle, and you can pick the level of assistance in between eco, tour, sport, and turbo.
From now on, everybody can bike along our amazing, but steep riviera!
