What is an electric bike?

A pedal assist e-bike is a bicycle with an electric motor to help you along. You ride it much like you ride a normal bicycle, but with less effort. An e-bike motor works by automatically switching on the (quiet) motor when you pedal.

An electric bike is a power assisted bike that has an electric motor to assist pedaling. E-bikes simply amplify your pedaling effort. They pedal like a regular bike, but it makes obstacles like hills and headwind more manageable and allows you to travel further without getting as tired.


Electric bikes are basically just electric-powered motorcycles, right?

No, electric powered motorcycles use a throttle to engage the power. Luverne e-bikes are pedal-assist, so input to the pedals determines the level of assist. Riding an electric bike with pedal-assist is incredibly intuitive, and anyone who can ride a bike will immediately feel comfortable on one.


How do the Luverne e-bikes work?

These pedal assist systems measure the amount of power you are putting into the pedals and it will increase or decrease the electric assist based on your pedaling power.

Begin by pedaling the e-bike like a standard bicycle and adjust the pedal assist power to your preference. 


What’s the best part about an e-bike?

Electric bikes break down barriers to riding. Most importantly, they are incredibly fun. Ride farther, see more, and explore the possibilities that come with a little extra power.


Where can I ride?

E-bikes are allowed on the Luverne Loop and Blue Mound Trail.  Bicyclists are also allowed on city streets and must obey all traffic laws.


How fast will the e-bike go?

Do I need to charge the e-bike battery?

No, staff will take care of ensuring batteries are charged between rentals.


What do I do if the e-bike battery dies during my rental?

You can continue to ride the bike as normal, however, it will be without any pedal assist.


What’s the range on a fully charged e-bike battery?

General range is 20-50 miles depending on power modes, terrain, and other riding conditions like load or wind. The more power assist used, the faster it will deplete the battery.


How do you turn the e-bike battery on/off?

Power to the e-bike is controlled from the handlebar. The power switch is on the left handle bar and is marked with the universal power symbol.


Can I adjust the seat?

Yes, the seat can quickly be adjusted with the lever under the seat.
