Electric Bike Rentals Victoria, BC

Are you looking to get out an explore Victoria? Do it the way the locals do in the cycling capital of Canada. By bike! But better then that do it with an electric bike. We strive to make renting an electric bike a simple process, and our e-bikes are easy to use to, one might say “like riding a bike”. The perfect activity whether you’re an avid cyclist or haven’t ridden in years. Pedal as much as you want to (don’t worry you can still get exercise if you want to) and the motor will be there to give you as much assistance as you want. Go faster and go father, see and experience more of the city in less time!

And if you would prefer some trail riding we have easy access to the Galloping Goose, only 1 km away by bike lane. Take the Galloping Goose and Lochside up the Saanich Peninsula towards Sidney on a lovely scenic ride. Or take the Galloping Goose out towards Langford, Metchosin and Sooke, and then loop back along the E&N trail through Esquimalt. Where ever you want to go the e-bikes can help you get there.

Find us at 1208 Wharf Street, just a couple blocks from the Johnson Street Bridge.

The Electric Bikes

We have five super fun electric bike models to choose from. There is something for everyone! The fold-able 350 CT and the 500 XT, the city cruiser Regal and Imperial and the super fun E-Scoots. Think riding an e-bike will be hard? Well, it’s as easy as riding a bike!

E-bikes aren’t any more difficult to ride then a normal bike, quite the opposite! And they don’t make you lazy either! The great thing about riding an e-bike is that you have options. You can pedal it like a regular bike, use any of the 5 levels of pedal assist or even use the throttle. This makes renting electric bikes the perfect choice for all fitness levels and capabilities, especially in a mixed group. Even if you don’t like riding bikes, you’ll love our e-bikes! Now everyone can enjoy a bike ride in the cycling capital of Canada.
