Ebikes, also known as electric bikes, are gaining ground in popularity in Phoenix, Arizona. Ebikes are bicycles outfitted with an electric pedal-assist motor, making for effortless rides even on rough terrain. If you’re in town and looking for something fun and exciting to do, consider renting an ebike and going on an adventure.
The state of Arizona classifies ebikes as a normal bicycle, which means they are allowed to ride on the streets or any bike path. Driver’s licenses are not needed to ride them, nor do they need to be registered with the state. Arizona does have a helmet law for children under the age of 18, but most cyclists in the state prefer to wear helmets at all times, regardless of age.
Where might you rent one of these ebikes? Our first recommendation would be Pedego Scottsdale. This shop rents standard 36V ebikes for $49 per half a day (up to 4 hours) or $69 for a full day (4-8 hours). If you’re feeling truly adventurous, you can rent it for a full week up to $339 dollars.
They also rent a premium 48V ebike, available for $69 for a half day (up to 4 hours) or $99 for the full day (4-8 hours) or a weekly rental for $469.
Another shop to rent your ebike would be Phat Rides Electric Bikes of Scottsdale. Don’t let the amusing name fool you, this shop is serious when it comes to ebike rentals. Book your bike by phone or online. They have several models from which to choose, but are available on a first come, first serve basis.
Where might you ride your rented ebike? We have a couple of good suggestions. Murphy’s Bridle Path is the perfect path for the nature lover. This path winds through wooded areas and sandy earth, yet it is heavily trafficked by pedestrians, joggers, and bikers. But for an easy, yet beautiful trail, this is the path you want, clocking in at only 1.5 miles. It is one of the shadiest spots in the city, with the trail itself being lined with hundreds of trees.
We also suggest Papago Park, a glorious trail that winds through the Arizona desert next to the famed Hole-in-the-Rock formation. This trail is also a great trail for anyone who’d like an easy ride or who is a newbie to riding ebikes. If you want to get a real taste of the Southwestern desert, do not miss this bike path, where palm trees, rock formations, and calm water pools await.
Renting an ebike is easy and affordable in Phoenix. For the vacationer who wants to get out of the hotel room and into nature, this is the perfect choice for excitement and adventure. Come and rent an ebike today and experience for yourself the beautiful desert countryside of Arizona. You will not be disappointed!
