Hubby and I took the 3 hour tour at 0900 on a Monday with John. Although we were experienced bicycle riders, we had never ridden e-bikes. John explained that the tour would progress at the capabilities of the riders, so there was no pressure on us. Getting the hang of the pedal assist process was probably the most difficult part for us but once we practiced in the parking lot, we were off and we ended up zipping along. We toured areas of the west end that we had not visited as tourists on previous island visits like the national park, residential neighborhoods or by the yacht club. We rode on the side of the road, over dirt trails, and other sometimes bumpy areas. As riders, you still needed to stay alert for various obstacles such as street drains, pot holes and puddles as well as be alert for John’s hand signals (turns, slowing down, obstacle). This is not an activity to learn how to ride a bike but to enjoy a great ride. John always demonstrated concern for our safety such as at stop signs, street crossings, etc. The locals were very courteous with us and gave the group a wide berth when passing us. We stopped at a couple of places where there were opportunities to use the restroom or to purchase water. We brought bottled water with us though and wore long sleeved SPF shirts as towards the end, the sun was intense even in late November. We never were bored. There was a snafu with our hotel for the ride back but John made sure we got put on the local bus which was quick. He’s a great ambassador for the Paddle Wheels! We had fun and were so glad we did it!
