The more hills to go, the heavier the weight, the more accucapacity will be used. You can regulate range of the battery if you use less support at the beginning
      and raise it if needed. Batteries will be loaded with the battery recharger by night in your room.

      ATTENTION: Please pre-book your E-bike early enough as we have restricted availability of approx. 12-15 E-bikes/ship.


      Bike breakdown
      Can also occur with very new and good bikes. A puncture of the wheel will be fixed by yourself, for bigger damages please contact your cruise director. Please do not make any repair-service without our agreement on our bikes. For smaller technical problems with the bike please contact the cruise director or a member of the crew at the end of the bike-leg.


      Private Bikes
      You are welcome to bring your own bicycle. This is adapted especially to your needs. Do not forget to bring a repair kit with all necessary tools such as: keys, reserve tube and lock. Please check your own bicycle for operability upon arrival. You will receive
      on board a pannier for your bike.

      Bikes will mostly be brought on/off board by the ship crew. Please note that we are not liable in case of damage.
      Due to organizational reasons (anchor second row) bikes will be partly left outside in front of the ship. Bicycles are exposed to the weather on board as the parking space is not covered. Storage of bikes inside the ship is not possible. The bicycle storage possibilities are restricted therefore the bikes will be transported close to each other or in a lying position. Please therefore remove all additional tools.

      Attention: Whether the ship, nor the shipping company/crew/Eurocycle are liable for customers’ own bikes on/off board.
