The Electric Bicycle Sightseeing Tour
Duration: Half Day
If you like the idea of feeling the sun on your face and the wind in your hair whilst cycling around the beautiful island of Bermuda, but it just feels like a little bit too much effort, this electric bicycle tour is perfect for you.
Cars are restricted to one per resident on the island of Bermuda, which is actually a fishhook-shaped archipelago comprising 138 coral islands. The main islands are connected by bridges and causeways, though, and the total land mass covers just 21 square miles, so Bermuda is often regarded as one island. The serenity of this quiet, tiny country makes it an ideal destination for exploring by bike, and this tour will give you all the benefits without the pain!
Your electric pedal-assisted bicycle will enable you to see much more of the island than just walking, and from a unique perspective. Whenever you pedal, the motor assists, and when you stop pedalling, the motor stops. The ped-electric bike then proceeds to ride just like a normal bicycle, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the journey. These revolutionary bikes have been proven to be the easiest to pedal, and they give even the most energetic of bikers a boost if needed.
Your exciting guided island tour begins at the Royal Naval Dockyard, otherwise known as Kings Wharf, one of Bermuda’s most popular tourist attractions. Steeped in maritime history, it was used as a base for the British Navy until the early 1950s. After receiving a safety briefing and various instructions you will be able to familiarize yourself with your bike before venturing out into this stunning island. Enjoy the ease of riding as you travel along quiet country roads, through the tranquil Lagoon Park, in which you will find a lagoon populated with ducks, wild fowl and other wildlife.
Your next stop is the Royal Naval Cemetery, which is over 400 years old. Pedal onwards through quiet neighbourhoods and along the historic Railway Trail, which is only open to cyclists and pedestrians. This scenic path runs the length of the island, closely following the old Bermuda Railway line, affectionately known as ‘Old Rattle and Shake’, which stretches from St George to Somerset. Some parts of the trail open out to the coast, offering beautiful panoramic views of the Great Sound, a body of water shaped by Bermuda’s islands which has formed a natural harbour. Your tour guide will be happy to answer any questions along the way, giving you interesting Bermudian facts to take away with you.
Offering incredible views, plenty of history and lots of fun without the hard work, this popular cycling tour is a great way to see the sights during your holiday in Bermuda. 85% of your ride will be along paved and relatively flat country roads, where there will be either light traffic or no traffic at all. Other sections include grass and a short dirt path, and some walking where necessary. Your tour will include a 20-minute ferry ride back to Kings Wharf.
