The true way to get back to nature is to travel the roads less traveled. The back roads through, and over the mountains are endless. There are so many, that you will never have to take the same route twice. this is also the perfect way to discover small villages and old settlements which, the average tourist hasn't found yet. There are the low travelled backroads and there are dirtroads. Whichever you prefer.
This is the reason we are so fond of the E-bike, because we can actually cover a vast amount of kilometers and altimeters in one trip. Everyone can ride at their own pace and speed and no-one gets left behind. You can make it as hard or easy as you wish and still get a good work-out while enjoying your surroundings. It's all about being one with nature and spending as much time as you can in it. Therefore, in our opinion, the outcome of the E-Bike has become THE answer to discover the beauty of what the island actually has to offer. Real Beauty!!
