Velo Volt E-Bike rentals launch in Kelowna

Velo Volt E-Bike launches

Two women who have been riding bikes together since the age of 13 had a vision to create a biking experience that everyone could enjoy, so the pair has just launched Velo Volt E-Bike rentals in Kelowna.

"We wanted a new concept. We wanted it to feel fun and easy and something that anyone can do," says co-founder Sarah Stark. 

The Velo Volt E-Bike's can equalize different fitness levels and abilities with their Trek Allant+ 7 models.

"Eco mode is our first level of pedal assist which could actually go about 130 kilometres so we really encourage people to get out there, find the top of Knox, explore south-east Kelowna, go to the end of Lakeshore," says Stark.

All of the bikes are equipped with lights, carrier bags, first-aid kits, hand sanitizers and e-grade helmets. 

Velo Volt E-Bike rentals are able to operate between Osoyoos and Revelstoke so group rentals can be organized at various locations. For those renting in Kelowna, Velo Volt has provided three self-guided tours including Velo Vines and Views, Foodie Fondo and Lakeshore Velo Vino.

"Or you can just go do your own thing if you want to hit every single beach one day you can do that but the maps point out some of the really good local businesses like restaurants, wineries and beaches," says co-founder Kendra Penrose.

E-Bike rentals also provide COVID friendly team building events.

"Right now a lot of people are working from home and you may not have been able to connect with colleagues so it's a really great safe outdoor way to reconnect," says Penrose.

Those renting Velo Volt E-Bikes must be 18-years-old or older. 

And with the launch of the company, Stark and Penrose have started an Instagram contest where people have the opportunity to submit a name for their orange bike trailer. The selected winner will then receive two free half-day E-Bike rentals.
