Mobility plays a key role when on vacation. 5.2 million Germans go on bicycle discovery tours during their vacations. This is shown by the ADFC cycling analysis 2017. eBikes are becoming more and more popular when it comes to choosing a two-wheeler: in 2016, 13 per cent of touring bikes in Germany were electrically assisted. The reasons: longer excursions are made possible, slopes can be negotiated more easily and electrical support can help compensate for a drop in the cyclist's energy levels. Electric bikes guarantee a comfortable and relaxed ride and lots of fun. If you are travelling by eBike, you will need the right infrastructure: This includes service or maintenance facilities, charging and rental stations, eBike routes and guides. Bosch eBike Systems supports pilot projects in selected holiday regions.
