Electric Bike Touring to Eurobike [VIDEO]

electric bike tour eurobike brett karenBrett Thurber and Karen Wiener from The New Wheel electric bike shop decided to add a little adventure to their trek to the Eurobike international bicycle trade show this year!

They recently completed an e-bike tour from Zurich, Switzerland to Friedrichshafen, Germany where Eurobike is held.

To give you an idea of this tour, here is a time lapse video capturing part of their trip that included 55 miles and 5,000 feet of climbing: 

Felt Electric Bikes supplied them with Bosch equipped SPORTe electric bikes for the tour.  Felt is a brand that Brett and Karen sell at their electric bike store in San Francisco, CA.

Brett and Karen followed some of the strenuous Alpine Panorama Route, which looks and sounds awesome!

This strenuous route put their Bosch equipped Felt e-bikes to the test.  At one lunch stop in the Alps they recharged their batteries and recharged themselves with a hearty Swiss meal of pork, cheese, soup and salad.

Along the way they toured the Swiss Army Knife factory, smelled and rode by the Lindt chocolate factory, sampled Swiss “nachos” and a multitude of fried food.

Enjoy this picture tour of their e-bike adventure:

    What a great way to enjoy these views. With the verticals shown in the photos, some of us wouldn’t be smiling w/o an ebike.
