FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why should I e-Bike?
e-Bikes are taking the world by storm, as people become more aware of their wellness needs, urban congestion and the impact of global warming on the environment. When out cycling, why get left behind or struggle up steep climbs? Rather keep moving (yes .... you need to pedal an e-Bike) and discover the experience of cycling without hitting a "physical wall" while still being active. e-Bikes open up a new world of mobility. Let Cape Lion introduce you to this world on a German, EU-specification e-Bike.
Who can e-Bike?
e-Biking is for anyone fit enough to take a moderate walk. Shared e-Bike tours with friends, couples and families who love exploring and experiencing new places are the most enjoyable.
Teens >14 years with cycling experience may come on one of our e-bike tours. Toddlers and 'littlies' may ride with an adult secured either in a child seat (9 to 22Kg) or in a child trailer (seats two, max 34 Kg).

Our company Safety First Policy requires all riders to wear a helmet while obeying rule of the road and riding in single file. Before departing on a guided tour your guide will brief all riders on safety matters and ask the rider to complete an indemnity agreement before departure.
Should you have any health concerns, consult your doctor before booking an e-Bike tour.
What should I wear on the day?
We suggest you wear comfortable shoes and clothes. The Cape is known as the Cape of Storms and our weather is changeable, so we recommend packing a light windbreaker or rain jacket.
