I really had no idea what riding an e-bike would be like but was pleasantly surprised to find how much fun they are! These bikes are not completely motorized, like a moped or scooter, you still have to peddle in order to move. E-bikes are pedal assisted which means the motor gives you a little turbo boost when you need it. This is helpful for getting up hills or if you are carrying the extra weight of a child on the back of your bike. On the day my family rode, Lamoille Valley Bike Tours was operating out of Oxbow Park in Morrisville. They are a mobile company and sometimes operate out of Old Mill Park in Johnson. They supply helmets, maps, and paper ride guides that have suggestions for places to stop along the way.

After a short orientation, proper bike fitting, and test drive, we jumped on the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail and set out for Johnson. The odometer on the bike told us we were cruising along the trail averaging 13-15 mph which was a very comfortable speed. Just like a regular bike, there are gears and you can adjust the pedal assisted motor from low, to medium to high.

It took us approximately 45 minutes to get to Johnson. it is the perfect destination for a half-day ride. Once in town, we grabbed a quick bite to eat at on the porch at Wicked Wings. There are several shops like Johnson Woolen Mills and Marvin Country store, and Ebenezer Books in town as well.

On the way back to Morrisville we stopped to check out the Lamoille River which runs parallel to the bike path. There are a few places where you can get down to the water and dip your toes in. Just before returning to Oxbow Park we popped into Lost Nation Brewing. They have a large outdoor Biergarten.

E-biking with Lamoille Valley Bike Tours is a great activity for families of all ages. Their Yuba Spicy Curry Cargo bikes can be outfitted with two child seats (ages 6 months - 6 Years) or one child seat and one padded rear seat (ages 6 yrs- adult). You can ride along effortlessly thanks to the pedal assist! These e-bikes are also great for grandparents who will find it easier to keep up or go longer distances.
