Belleville hotels rent sightseeing eBikes

According to a local TV report, three hotels in Belleville, Ont., are renting eBikes to guests so that they can get around the community and do more sightseeing. Belleville's waterfront features bike paths and trails popular with tourists.

According to hotel manager Ron Anderson at the Holiday Inn Express, patrons can rent one of his eBikes by the hour or day.

The bikes are styled as "pedelecs," a conventional-looking pedal-powered bicycle with a small drive motor fitted to the hub of the rear wheel.

"This initiative promotes Belleville and Quinte's bike trails with a bike that can be used by any skill level," Ryan Williams of Williams Hotels and tourism chairman for the Belleville & District Chamber of Commerce said in the Belleville Intelligencer.
