A-ROSA River Cruises is now featuring electric bicycles on the river Seine. 11 bikes are available on board A-ROSA VIVA, the first in the fleet to feature them. The move follows growing demand from customers for bike tours in many of the cities and destinations visited.
Each bike is fitted with a compact electric motor, offering 250 watts of power. Riders can pick which power level of assistance require whilst riding, from various levels. There is also the option to switch the motor of altogether, for those who want a hard-er workout.
Lucia Rowe, head of A-ROSA UK and Ireland comments: “Exploring a destination or city on a bike is an incredible way to experience it. We offer bike tours on all our ships, but these e-bikes make our excursions even more accessible and will appeal to a more varied audience. As they have a motor, the bikes offer assistance for those riders who may feel they don’t have the fitness or confidence to join a group tour.”
A range of different bike excursions are offered on the Seine, including a three and a half hour ‘Bike Tour through Normandy’ and a three and a half hour ‘Bike Tour to Giverny and Claude Monet’s Garden’. All bike tours are bookable on board and are ac-companied by a guide, plus helmets and water are provided
