Iceland e-bike Challenge

For Midsummer 2013, the Pedelec Adventures team went on another pioneer trip on electric bikes. For this year’s journey, the Pedelec Adventures team chose Iceland – a country that has been shaped by ice and fire, wind and water, long nights in summer and short days in winter. Traveling between glaciers and hot springs, the bike enthusiasts faced the Nordic elements on speed-pedelecs from the eflow brand.
