Crystal dispenses with e-bikes for safety
Starting in mid-July Crystal River Cruises is shifting from e-bikes to regular Trek bikes. Too many guests were getting injured with the e-bikes.
Walter Littlejohn, vice president of river cruises are report. Crystal’s experience has been that many guests don’t handle the e-bikes successfully.
E-bikes use battery packs to power cycles easier for guests to pedal. But the e-bikes are harder for the guests to control.
Crystal delivers the bikes to its four Rhine-class ships, rather than store them onboard.
