Explore Asheville Your Way
In addition to leading awesome tours, The Flying Bike is proud to rent out our fleet of Pedego electric bikes. If you would like to explore Asheville on your own or want to extend the amount of time with our electric bikes, we do a limited amount of rentals or “self-guided” tours each day.
If you’d like to venture out to explore Asheville on your own, rent a comfortable and easy-to-ride electric bicycle from The Flying Bike! Our bike rentals give you the flexibility to see Asheville at your own pace and the electric pedal-assist option on our bikes lets you ride uphill with ease and wander as far as you’d like! As locals and fans of our own great city, we’re happy to give you recommendations for things to do, places to explore, and even bars and restaurants to stop in to get a taste of Asheville.
Pedego Boomerang Plus
The Pedego Boomerang Plus is the lowest step-through electric bike on the market, which means it’s easy to mount and comfortable to ride! With both pedal assist and throttle power, it will help you up those Asheville hills! The best thing about this bike is you can choose how much pedal assistance you’d like, so you can get a workout or relax and let the motor do the work for you.
We also recommend rain gear, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a camera. On the back rack of each bike is a bag the size of a shoebox with a waterproof cover.
- Bike lock
- Cold spring water. Please bring your own water bottle!
- Rear cargo bag with rain cover
- Ponchos for unexpected rain
- A map of Asheville with points of interest
- The legal age to operate electric bikes is 16 years old.
- A driver’s license is not required to ride an electric bike.
- Our suggested minimum height is 5 feet tall to operate your own e-bike. Shorter participants may accompany another tour-goer as a passenger on a cargo bike.

- While no experience riding an electric bike necessary, guests must be able to confidently ride a standard bike. If it has been a while since you’ve been on a bike, we highly recommend you practice, even just once, before you pick up your rental.
- Your safety is our first priority, and if you do not feel comfortable riding your electric bike at the start of the rental period, we’ll offer you a full refund.
In the event of inclement weather, we will contact you an hour before your scheduled rental to see if you’d still like to ride. If you decide against it, we can reschedule your rental for another time/day or provide a full refund.
