Saddle Skedaddle Launches NEW Electric Mountain Bike Trip Series
E-MTBs have been widely debated in the mountain biking world (the biggest question: is using an e-MTB cheating?) but Saddle Skedaddle believes e-MTBs benefit experienced mountain bikers who want to push themselves to the next level, so they can conquer mountains one day and hop back on the saddle the next.
From zooming along one of the world’s longest mountain trails in Italy with the wind in your hair to reaching the summit of Spain’s third highest peak in triumph with energy to spare, here are Saddle Skedaddle’s NEW e-MTB trips, guaranteed to put some extra pep in your pedal:
Scale the Dolomites of Brenta
On this 7-day Italian getaway, riders will climb high into the Brenta Dolomites with the help of their e-MTB, allowing you to hit more strenuous paths with more steam. Speed along dirt roads, forest tracks, singletracks, and open trails through the nearly 25-mile-long mountain region, passing alpine lakes, exploring ancient orchards and vineyards, and taking in the spectacular mountain vistas, including one from famed Rifugio Peller in Adamello-Brenta National Park. Along the way, enjoy village feasts of stew and polenta and lakeside gelato treats and stretch your (not-so-tired!) legs on a mountain hike.
Departs Aug. 17; priced from $2,160 per person.
Breeze through the Sensational Sierra Nevada
Explore remote paths through Spain’s Sierra Nevada mountains on this 7-day singletrack adventure on a route known as the mountain biker’s “Shangri-La.” Designed for experienced mountain bikers, this journey uses pedal assisted e-MTBs so travelers can do more, see more, and give more while climbing to the summit of Spain’s third highest peak. With miles of switchbacks and technical trails to explore, riders also explore olive and almond groves, sample the country’s tastiest Jamon in the village of Trevelez, and spend a celebratory night at the Refugio Poquiera after tackling a vertical climb of nearly 2,300 feet.
Departs Sept. 29; priced from $1,755 per person.
