Grasshopper Adventures E-bike Tours Asia

E-Bikes

Bike touring in Asia is now even more accessible with the introduction of Pedal-assist E-Bikes on Grasshopper tours in Sri Lanka and Vietnam.


E-bikes are revolutionizing the world of cycling and Grasshopper Adventures is the first cycle tour operator in Asia to have them as an option.

They have rapidly changed the face of bike touring throughout Europe, and the US and for good reason. E-bikes help everybody, regardless of capability or strength, to effortlessly expand their cycle touring possibilities throughout Asia.

We have strategically chosen to provide 'Pedal-Assist' bikes on our tours, which are not to be mistaken with an Electric Scooter. You pedal as you would any regular bike and an electric motor amplifies your pedal stroke, with the degree of amplification set by you using the onboard computer. You start, stop and steer the bike exactly as you would any regular bicycle; no accelerator, speedometer, indicators, exhaust pipe or in fact anything that would have you mistake it for a motorbike.

Our Pedal-assist bikes use the Shimano Steps system

Is it cheating? The short answer is no. This is a boost to enhance your experience. You still enjoy pedalling, stop pedalling and the bike will roll to a halt as it would any regular bike. So you are still getting out-and-active cycling along with everyone else, but the e-bike's assist helps you to further experience the joy of exploring the world on two wheels.
