MINeBIKE is a small company that aims at offering a cutting edge service to as many people as possible who wish to cover long distances and discover the Island of Elba with the help of a guide, a way that has recently proved to be very popular. For this reason we have decided to team up with a large, leading firm that deals in e-bikes.
All the routes are quite easy so people of every level can tackle them with very little effort, also because all our e-bikes are fitted with the latest Bosch motor.
