Pedal Assist Bikes

Ride The Rockies does allow Class 1 Pedal Assist Bikes.   Please note the following if you are planning to ride a Class 1 Pedal Assist Bikes:

  • Rider is responsible for ensuring the bike is fully charged before starting each day
    • Please note that RTR cannot guarantee access to an outlet at HQ if you are doing outdoor or indoor camping. There is high probability of access but no guarantee
  • Rider is responsible for having an extra battery. They must travel with the battery on their bike OR send it to the Pedal Assist Battery Designated Aid Station (RTR will designate an aid station every day that is at the approximate midway point on that’s day route)
  • If Rider needs a SAG wagon, please note that not all vehicles can carry a Pedal Assist Bike due to the weight so there may be a longer wait

RTR will have specialized mechanics on the route and at HQ to assist with the specialized needs of Class 1 Pedal Assist bikes.

All individuals on Pedal Assist Bikes are required to follow the same safety rules and laws as everyone else.
