Take it EZ
Scotland’s capital Edinburgh is one of the most unique and beautiful cities in Europe. We caught up with Edinburgh’s top electric bike tour company, EZ Bike Tours, to learn a little more about their services and how they’re dealing with tier three restrictions.
Many of us will have to stay home this holiday season. And even though Winter is approaching, it doesn’t mean you have to stay cooped up inside. Instead, plan a fun-filled staycation and visit a local electric bike rental fleet in your neighbourhood.
For those who live, or are lucky enough to visit Edinburgh, give EZ Bike Tours a call!

Is EZ Bike Tours still operating during the pandemic?
“We will not be shut during this pandemic”, says Carol Harris, one of EZ Bike Tours’ tour operators. “We are open for fun, fresh air and social distancing - even through the winter months. These bikes are a wonderful escape. We have 14 bikes and can take up to 7 children/infants on a tour.”

Getting outside -- in bad times and good -- is one of the most beneficial things you can do for yourself. It doesn’t just boost your health, it also helps lift your mood and relieve stress.
With that in mind, it's no surprise that people everywhere are turning to electric bikes to help them navigate the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
