If you’ve ever wondered what all the E-bike fuss is about, these are the sessions for you.

The Sunshine Coast Environment Council’s Come and Try E-bikes sessions are the perfect opportunity to try before you buy. During the two-hour sessions you have the chance to give them a workout while on a safe and pleasant ride along our pathway network in a locality near you. 

E-bikes are the perfect way to explore our great cycle pathways, get fit, or maybe even ditch the car and ride one to work. Older cyclists or commuters might be particularly interested in having a go. SCEC will be running these rides once a month across the region. Only 10 participants per ride, so register early! 

Each session will last for 2 hours, and include a safety briefing and convivial morning tea at the end.
