It's claiming to be the world's biggest 100% e-bike event and even beginners can take part. So why not?




Registration is now open for the first Verbier E-Bike Festival which will take place from the 15th to 18th August in the famous Swiss ski resort.

The groundbreaking festival is exclusively about e-bikes - the ones that have batteries to help you pedal with less effort.

There will be activities dedicated to road, downhill and cross-country disciplines.

We've reported many times on the growing craze of e-biking in the mountains:

All participants in the Verbier festival will be supplied with e-bikes if they do not have their own equipment already, giving everyone a chance to test out the latest models.

The four-day event is open to participants of all ages and skill levels and includes a range of activities:

  • E-Bike Test: Test the latest gear from more than 30 bike brands during four days of nonstop action. Try out an E-MTB, E-Road, or E-Gravel bike. Ride on Verbier's world-class trail system, including an Uphill flow e-powered by Bosch. Rides for beginners up to experts.
  • Rando Gourmande by Rent a Bike: Hop on your bike and experience an itinerary through the Val de Bagne's culinary delights and traditions.
  • Discovery Tour: Half-day and full-day rides that take you on any every level of bike trail; these tours also feature stops at local restaurants (guided and non-guided tours available).
  • Tour Val de Bagnes by Altis: Test your skills against the clock with scenic races through mountain landscapes in 38km, 66km, or 100km formats; there's a race for every level of rider.
  • Kids Race & Animations: Let the e-bikers of tomorrow get an early start in a fun race designed just for kids. Try the Impossible Uphill by White Frontier at the end of the day while enjoying the "after-bike" with beers and music.

All festival participants will be able to enjoy the range of activities planned including concerts, barbecues, professional rider meet-ups, food and drink.
