Find the e-bike for you

E-bikes are a sustainable, healthy and
fun way of transportation.
Whether you want to bike to work, stay fit, transport packages, do groceries, pick up the kids, go on vacation or have fun on bike trails; there is an e-bike for every occasion!
At the E-bike Challenge we showcase all
kinds of different models.
You can talk to specialists to find out which e-bike fits your needs, demo the e-bike selection
and buy them directly at the bike shops
who are available at the event.
Our event also has a health corner, destinations with hike and bike trails, workshops, presentations and a kids area.
