"Electric Bike Rentals at Hanover Adventure Tours were incredible! We did a 30 mile loop around Lake Ferril (2 hour rental) stopping to swim half way around. The route blended the perfect combination of hills, dirt and paved roads, along with numerous scenic views along the way.
The bikes were impressively powerful and easy to operate. With six pedal assist modes helping you up to 28 mph and a throttle propelling you to 20 mph, you looked forward to climbing hills with ease and cruising down (of course if you really wanted to work you didn’t need to use the power either). On a couple downhill portions I reached 45.2 mph and another in our group topped 46! And if you’re thinking it may be too much for you, the oldest in our group was 70, and he was blown away by the experience.
The staff was super friendly and helpful in getting everyone prepared, answering questions, and following up with our ride. They also helped map our route and load it in our GPS on our phone mounted on our bike to be able to ride without much thought.
I would highly recommend giving this a try. I look forward to the next opportunity I have to get back. I truly believe this would appeal to a wide range of people, from thrill seekers and exercise fiends, to casual scenic riders. With all they have to offer and a friendly knowledgeable staff, I have a feeling this place is going to be in high demand as word gets around. Thanks for a great memory, look forward to making some more soon!"
“Words can not describe how this hostel treated me. The shuttle came when I needed it! Didn’t have to wait long at all. Everyone here is my friend on trail, like 5 of us. My ice cream was excellent after a hot day hike of 23 miles. Thank you. I’m drinking coffee while watching the river, mountains in the background. Wherever the trail may take us in life, remember the hard work that was put in to make it this far. We all have a reason in life. The folks at the hostel were there for me when I just needed to talk, they listened. For 1 night on the trail in the last 3.5 months, I closed my eyes to sleep and actually felt like I was home.”
“Wow, this place has been the most unique hostel experience I’ve ever had. Never thought I’d be riding E-bikes while thru-hiking the AT. Thanks Odie!!! We will surely miss your ultra-cushioned beds and clean facilities. Thanks again!”
"The staff at Hanover are so friendly, personable, helpful, and really knowledgeable about the area. Great hiking, enjoyed swimming in the Connecticut River, and meeting other hikers. The breakfast provided was delicious (pancakes, eggs, fruit, and coffee). Highly recommend for any adventurer whether thru or day hiking, discovering the area, or a local looking to do activities in the area. Thank you again Jayne and Bill for your great service!"
"Just bought a Yamaha Crosscore Ebike after many hours of demo and Q & A. The staff here is very knowledgable and helpful about the ins and outs of the bikes and buying was a wonderful experience. Thanks to everyone. "
"Highly recommend! They put together a 2 hour 30 mile scenic route that was perfect for some guys coming into town for a wedding event. Power assist makes biking fun for everyone!"
"Had a blast riding e-bikes all over Norwich. I’d never ridden one before but had no trouble at all getting used to them. Staff were extremely nice, knowledgeable, and helpful. Lots of fun and I look forward to doing it again!"
"These folks are fantastic! Helped with slackpacking. Very clean. Everything you need from clean bed, warm shower, to breakfast and $1 Ben & Jerrys!"
"The perfect spot for adventure sports and lodging. It was my first time riding a bike in ages and Bill patiently worked with me until I was comfortable enough to go on our e-bike tour. He went above and beyond to ensure my safety. The entire staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The hostel was clean, well maintained and had a variety of tasty breakfast options. My friends and I had a fantastic time and are looking forward to our next visit. Highly recommend!"
"E-bikes were the BEST! I haven’t ridden in years and was nervous about the hills, but the e-bike was a game changer. It really was like regular biking only better. The ride was gorgeous, and Hanover Adventure Tours made it so easy. Bill took time to make sure I was comfortable on the bike and explained everything so I completely understood it. There was really only one extra button to learn and other than that it was just regular biking - but way better especially up hills! You could explore for days around here - cute town, amazing mountain and river views. The best day!"
"We had a great time! The route was wonderfully scenic, the bike performance stellar. Our HAT hosts were knowledgeable, courteous and very friendly. Want an extraordinary new experience? This is the one."
"Stayed at the hostel for an extended time. Very clean and the staff were beyond excellent. Anything you need is there; free breakfast, hot shower, area for a camp fire. Well worth the money! Shout out to Jayne and Hannah, they are amazing!"
