For cyclists switching to ebikes
For cyclists who switch to ebikes, handling the support levels and checking the operating display is an unusual and therefore often underestimated requirement. On the other hand, there is this incomparable thrust when pedalling compared to a bicycle! This magical ease in locomotion! It could bring a confident smile to your face if you were more familiar with the ebike. Welcome, you’ve come to the right place!
Becoming familar with the ebike
With this course you will become familiar with your ebike and will be able to take advantage of the pedal-assisted biking as you want it to be.
Step by step, pedal stroke by pedal stroke
You approach ebiking step by step and pedal stroke by pedal stroke. Through the playful exercises and trying out the different operating modes, you will get a feeling for the many possibilities of the ebike. Soon we will be able to leave the training place and collect real ebike experiences in a traffic-free area in order to become even smoother on the ebike.
Course mode “At sight”
The ebike course is designed in “At sight” mode, i.e. you reserve only one double lesson at a time and decide whether you want to continue or whether your learning requirements have already been met. A double lesson costs 60,- €.
Course location easily reachable by subway at the Reichsbrücke bridge on the New Danube in Vienna
The course will take place on the left bank of the Neue Donau river in the immediate vicinity of the Reichsbrücke bridge in Vienna, where you can easily get by underground U1 or by car.
Individual training dates
The two-hour training dates can be arranged individually. On weekdays appointments are possible from 14:00 and on weekends from 8:00. Early risers can even enjoy magical early morning moments by booking appointments from 6:00 – 8:00 a.m.!
Ebikes can be rented if you don’t come with your own ebike
Payment of course fees
The course costs of 60,- € per double hour will be paid after the respective date. It is also possible to make cashless payments with a Maestro or credit card or by prior bank transfer.
Your pre-registration is not binding
To sign up for the ebike course, please fill out the form below and submit your contact details. The City Cycling School will then get in contact with you in order to arrange the course dates and send you the summarized information about the ebike course. The pre-registration is not binding in any case. It becomes binding as soon as we have agreed on an appointment and you are ready to start the ebike course.
That would be ideal, of course! Your ebike should have working brakes, inflated tyres, an oiled chain and – if available – well adjusted gears. It goes without saying that the battery is charged and the electronics work, isn’t it? f necessary, the bike mechanics of the bike rental can help you at our meeting point.
Three steps lead you to the ebike course:
1.) After your non-binding pre-registration the City Cycling School will inform you about the possible dates.
2.) As soon as we have agreed on a course date, you will receive the summarized information about your ebike course.
3.) Only then will your pre-registration become a regular registration and you are ready to start your ebike course.
As already described above, your cycling course will take place on the left bank of the New Danube at the Reichsbrücke bridge in Vienna. You can reach the exercise place comfortably by underground line U1, stop “Donauinsel” or by car, parking lot “Donauinsel”. So it’s only a few minutes walk away! In any case, you will receive the detailed directions including a sketch plan and Google Maps link during the pre-registration.
Yes, of course! The maximum group size is 4 persons and the best thing is that you can divide the course fee of 60,- € per double lesson among the attendees, because it stays the same. Simply enter the names of the second / third / fourth person in the remarks field when you pre-register for the ebike course!
You read correctly, there is also good bad weather, where you can learn to ebike without problems with appropriate clothing and we therefore – after prior arrangement – hold the course so to speak `despite the bad weather´. In case of badly bad weather we will reschedule the course in time!
Come as you are! You need closed shoes with flat heels and thin soles; long trousers suitable for movement protect your legs from abrasions; a light jacket prevents you from cooling off as soon as we take a break; if you have long hair, a hair band prevents them from falling into your face.
You read correctly: no need for helmet, knee pads, elbow pads, gloves, cycling shorts, safety vest, etc.
