Whether for a holiday in the Alps or a weekend in the Franconian Lake District: Popular holiday regions and local recreation areas attract eBikers with beautiful tours all year round. For even more diverse discoveries, Bosch eBike Systems is now offering new tour suggestions for particularly popular holiday regions in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland in collaboration with komoot, the leading route planning app: Among them are the Chiemgau, Franconian Switzerland, the Franconian Lake District, the Franconian Wine Country, Stuttgart, the Salzkammergut and Ticino.

Tour suggestions come from on-site outdoor experts

Together with regional experts, routes were selected that are ideally suited for eBikes – and at the same time offer inspiring alternatives to well-known and thus crowded paths. The eBike's range provides for extended boundaries, allowing for riding beyond busy routes. This way, every eBike ride becomes a discovery tour and can be enjoyed even more away from large crowds. The new komoot collections offer the right tour for every demand – from family-friendly rides for everyone to challenging trails for ambitious eMountainbikers.

The komoot collaboration highlights an important concern of Bosch eBike Systems: “We are committed to respectful, tolerant and considerate coexistence between all people who enjoy spending their leisure time outdoors in nature. As it can sometimes get a bit tighter on well-known routes during the holiday season, the alternative route suggestions offer eBikers new inspiration. They also help to unbundle frequently travelled routes in popular holiday regions”, says Claus Fleischer, CEO of Bosch eBike Systems.

Determine the starting point of the tour yourself

Since the electric drive of the eBike allows longer distances, it is easy to leave the car behind and start cycling directly from the front door or the hotel. The new komoot collections of Bosch eBike Systems support this. The routes do not start at a pre-determined car park, but are designed so that the starting point of the ride itself can be chosen independently: from home, from the hotel or directly after arrival by train from the train station. This way, the riding enjoyment begins as soon as you arrive, and you can create your own sustainable holiday.

Route planning with komoot and Bosch eBike Systems

All Bosch eBike Systems connected displays support tour planning via komoot. The routes can be easily planned with the apps from Bosch and komoot or in the respective online portal, synchronised with the display and then travelled. Even beyond the new collections, eBikers can get inspiration for tours from komoot because the app has many more route inspirations at the ready. With the eBike option in komoot, routes can also be planned very precisely: If “eBike” is selected when planning a route with komoot, users receive adapted information on the duration and degree of difficulty of the tour because the fitness of the rider, the eBike type (mountain bike, road bike, touring bike, gravel bike, MTB enduro) and the topography are all taken into account. The eBike features of komoot are available for both the eBike Connect app and the COBI.Bike app. Tours travelled with Kiox, Nyon or COBI.Bike are automatically uploaded to komoot as eBike rides.
