Sun Peaks E-Bike rentals are one of the newest activities at the resort and are quickly becoming a favorite activity for everyone from non or very casual bike riders, all the way up to expert riders.

E-Bikes, or electric-assist bikes, have actually been around for quite some time already.  But only recently have they evolved to the level where the bikes can be used on the streets, on cross-country bike trails, and even in downhill bike parks around North America and even around the world.

Sun Peaks E-Bike rentals are currently only available through McSporties, and are available to rent from mid-June through to mid-October.  At the time of writing, a half-day rental will cost you $60/bike, and a full day will cost you $89. 

Book online in advance through our inquiry form below and save 10%.

The electric-assist bikes can be used virtually anywhere in Sun Peaks – along the Valley Trail and trail networks, on the free-to-use cross-country trails to McGillivray Lake or Morrisey Lakes, on the lift-accessed alpine trails like Altitude and Big Rock Ride, and even in the lift-accessed downhill bike park trails.

Be sure to order your lift pass in advance for lift pass discounts.

McSporties has a small fleet of Rossignol E Track Trail bikes, which are full-suspension electric assist bikes that deliver high performance, stable handling and a comfortable ride for all-day adventure. Combining the power of a Shimano E8000 motor with the performance of the Split Pivot suspension design, the E Track Trail delivers great performance on all types of trails. They are powered by a 500Wh battery that can reach up to 120Km. When climbing or descending, the E-Track Trail offers outstanding performance and comfort.

According to local mountain bike expert, heli-ski guide, SUP and surf professional, Bodie Shandro, “You will get the same if not more exercise on an E-Bike.  It is pedal “ASSIST” which means you can choose as much or as little assist as you want, or none at all.  I am riding further, and up sections never before dreamed of with an E-Bike, and having more fun doing it!”

        Benefits of riding a Sun Peaks E-Bike

For those concerned about cheating on their amount of personal exercise they get, recent studies have shown:

- E-bike users continue to ride at moderate to vigorous levels of physical activity (just faster)
- E-bike riders generally cover longer distances than regular bike riders
- E-bikes are sometimes used in place of a car which is of course better for the environment
- Traditional non-bike riders were more inclined to go riding (and get exercise) if they had an e-bike, and
- E-bike riders experience the same or sometimes even better health benefits in areas like aerobic fitness and heart rate.

From a Sun Peaks guest point of view, these bikes are fantastic!  Visitors that don’t bike often or maybe aren’t in that good of shape can have fun and get out to explore the beautiful mountains and country-side, as can experienced bikers, and whole families can got out and explore together while on holiday.

There are only a limited number of Sun Peaks E-Bikes available, so be sure to book in advance to ensure availability during your Sun Peaks vacation, and to save 10% off the walk-up rental rate.
