The sport of mountain biking has evolved over recent years to include e-mountain biking, also called E-MTB, where riders are assisted by battery power. Most E-MTBs are pedal-assist, which means that the battery kicks in as you pedal.
It’s not an electric motorcycle – the rider still needs to pedal – but the E-MTB battery takes some of the hard work out of climbing on a mountain bike, meaning that you can go further and tackle more descents during one ride, than with pedal power alone.
Fancy giving it a go yourself? Remember: you'll still need a decent fitness level, like any cyclist, to give it a go. You can try it pretty much anywhere, though some destinations offer a wider variety of epic landscapes to ride past. Above all else, it's lots of fun.
