Be relaxed on the camping vacation-and order the right e-bike accessories here
The pedelecs, in general also called e-bikes, are still very popular. More and more users, from cozy gourmets to sporty racing cyclists and e-mountain bikers, can be supported by the electric motor when they pedal. In this way, e-bikers can explore other and more demanding routes. Cyclists in Best Ager-Age also companies with their pedelec or trekking e-bike eventful bike tours. They also do something good for health and fitness without strain on the muscles and joints. The electric motor of the pedelecs only supports the cyclist, who also kicks himself. The exception of this is the starting and sliding operation: the e-wheel is managed on the handlebar, but is slowly moving by itself.
No wonder that campers often have an e-bike with them
Then you can leave the caravan, tent or motorhome on your desired parking space - and enjoy the landscape in an environmentally friendly and relaxed manner, get buns or head for the next restaurant. Most e-bikes/pedelecs with their dimensions and their weight fit on conventional rear bike racks for camping vehicles. You may be too heavy for transport on the roof rack of a car, as early as charging. If the caravan does not have to be attached, but is already available on site: Then bike racks are also suitable for e-bike transport, which are mounted on the trailer coupling of the car.
Many campsites have also adjusted to the e-bike boom
For example, they offer you charging stations for the battery. In addition, there are the many services for all cyclists that camping operators have ready for you: for example, cycling cards, insider tips on special bike paths and guided adventure tours with other campers and e-bikers. In many places you can also rent a shelter for low fees. There you can not only charge your Pedelec for the next bike trip. It is also dry and is protected against theft.
More bike or more electric moped - the selection is large
For pedelecs that make up the vast majority of all e-bikes, the engine in Germany can develop up to 250 watts. If you prefer to discover the surroundings with an electric moped, you choose an S-Pedelec. It also drives "without kicking". The electric motor of an S-Pedelec is not throttled, but often produces up to 400 watts. A paid insurance license plate (the well-known moped number signs) is required for these two-wheelers. Helmet also applies.
Of course, Pedelec drivers who "with" steps themselves-always wear a helmet should also be committed to it! After all, leisure cyclists who are traveling on a normal bicycle with 12 to 20 kilometers per hour reach 25 km/h and more thanks to the auxiliary drive! If you cycle electrically, please also consider that many drivers have not yet got used to this relatively new speed miracle! They often underestimate the speed, for example on entrances, when turning or when they overtake. This can have dangerous consequences for the pedelec and e-bike driver. A signal vest should also wear responsible drivers, especially if they are traveling in dense traffic. Even when driving in the dark, the visibility increases enormously with a warning vest - as a sensible addition to proper lighting and a helmet in a light color.
When camping with e-bike, it is particularly recommended to take one or two suitable replacement hoses with you
Because a bicycle dealer is not always nearby. Maybe your e-bike also has "a record" when you are 40, 50 kilometers from the camping parking space. In addition, weather and temperature conditions are not always so pleasant that the time-consuming is fun and patching a hole in the hose. Then it is practical if a reserve tube is part of the luggage- as well as a space and weight-saving multifunctional tool.
When is a change of chainring or rear wheel tooth wreath necessary?
You can see this primarily by the fact that the U-shaped outgrowth between the teeth have visibly enlarged-and that the tooths are "rounded out". Also remember that you are not only more kilometers with e-bikes, but also faster than on the normal bike! What may still go on the normal bike can become a security risk in the e-bike. To change chainring (sprocket) or tooth wreath, you can select a tooth wreath or pedal crank puller here. If you are not sure how the parts are assembled professionally, please contact a specialist workshop.
Clearly visible and safely on the way
You can also find high-quality lighting sets for front and back as well as head lamps for your e-bike tour-for carefree and safe driving pleasure. So that you can connect your Trekking e-bike to the campsite, when visiting sights or restaurants, choose a robust folding lock, for example.
Please also think of sufficient drinks for on the go
You will be supported by the engine of your bikes. But still a tour with the trekking or an e-mountain bike can become sweaty. In addition, thanks to electrical support, most cyclists drive significantly more kilometers than if they were traveling with a normal bike. Even one or the other hill, in which you might otherwise be descended, will be "climbed" with the e-bike ... So that your personal battery remains as complete as that of the e-bike, you can have a drinking bottle from brand manufacturers such as bicycle Choose Gear or Dunlop and order conveniently online. On request, you will also receive the bicycle drinking bottles with a bracket or in the inexpensive 2-Ser.
Haben or mid-engine?
More and more manufacturers are relying on the drive principle of the mid -engine. The e-aid engine "sits" at the bottom bracket. This offers the advantage of direct power transmission to the crank and thus on the chainring and chain. In addition, the focus of the entire e-bike in this construction is usually significantly lower-compared to the focus of e-bikes with hub engines. Because they are mostly on the axis of the front wheel. Anyone who appreciates the security and maintenance and ease of use of a resignation brake will also opt for a trekking e-bike or touring pedelec with a mid-engine. Models with a hub motor (also called rim engine) usually have no resignation brake. The progress in the charging capacity of the batteries also promotes the trend towards the mid -engine: the use of brake energy to charge the accumulator, a feature of many hub engines, is less important than before. If you want to expand or replace a mid -engine, also called the bottom bracket engine: there are pulling tools, for example for Bosch's widespread medium engines.
Good luck and always a good trip with your e-bike!
