About the e-chopper
The e-chopper is a rugged electric motorbike that is easy to start and ride. Set off with your group and follow the route through the woods and tiny villages. We have two routes through De Kempen and the Veldhoven area. But you do not have to follow these routes. You must be at least 16 years old to operate an e-chopper and you must have a valid driving licence or moped permit. The maximum speed limit is 25 km per hour. You are not required to wear a helmet. An e-chopper is designed as a single-person vehicle, so you are not allowed to take a passenger.
Do I need a driving licence for an e-chopper?
Yes, you need a motorcycle (A), car (B) or moped (AM) licence to operate an e-chopper. In addition, you must be at least 16 years old.
Is a helmet required to ride an e-chopper?
As of January 1, 2023, wearing a (bicycle) helmet is mandatory.
What is the maximum speed of an e-chopper?
The maximum speed of an e-chopper is 25 km per hour.
What is the maximum range with a fully charged battery?
Can 2 people ride on an e-chopper?
No, only 1 person can be on a rented e-chopper at a time. So you are not allowed to take a child along as a passenger.
How old do you have to be to ride an e-chopper?
You are allowed to operate an e-chopper as soon as you have a motorcycle (A), car (B) or moped (AM) licence.
For how many people can I hire e-choppers from you?
You can hire e-choppers from us for groups of up to 5 people.
Where am I allowed to ride the e-chopper?
You can ride an e-chopper on bicycle paths and on the part of the road where bicycles are allowed. For e-choppers the same rules and regulations apply as for bicycles. You are not allowed to ride on the pedestrian pavement. You are not allowed to operate this type of vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
What if bad weather is predicted?
In case of rain we will coordinate with you to see if the activity can be postponed. We always find a solution together!
What should I bring with me?
Please make sure to bring your driving licence with you. We are not allowed to let you hire an e-chopper without it.
Do I have to follow a certain route or can I choose my own?
Either way is fine! In any case, we have put together two routes that are easy to follow with your own phone (there is a phone holder on the handlebars). These routes pass by pavement cafés and various attractions in the Veldhoven area. You are also free to come up with your own route.
Do you also have predetermined routes?
Yes and no. If you wish to hire an e-chopper then you are free to go and cruise where you want. This is fine just so long as you are back on time (maximum 3 hours or 45 km).
But we have also created several routes that are ideal for seeing the beautiful scenery in and around Veldhoven. These give you plenty of variety – riding along the water, enjoying views, going through woods and passing by tourist attractions. We will give you a booklet containing the different routes. You can follow these by scanning a QR code with your phone. You will need to download the Google Maps app if you don't have it already.
One of the benefits of our e-choppers is that they all have a phone holder and a USB port. So you can enter the route into your smartphone and then put the phone in the holder so that your hands are free for steering. Both safe and convenient!
How long can I rent an e-chopper for?
The e-chopper rental is for 3 hours.
What if the e-chopper breaks down on the road?
If this happens, contact us right away using the number in the booklet that is included in the e-chopper rental and we will rush to the rescue. We will give you a replacement so that you can continue on your way as quickly as possible.
What are some handy tips for preparation?
Wear glasses or sunglasses when riding the chopper.
Bring a backpack or satchel.
A skirt/miniskirt is not suitable for riding an e-chopper.
Do not forget your driving licence if you wish to hire an e-chopper because we are strict about checking this!
In summertime it is a good idea to bring sunglasses and sunscreen.
Dress appropriately in colder weather. Gloves are not just for looks.
Is there rain in the forecast? Then pack a rain poncho.
Tips for the ride
Stay on the bicycle paths and do not go off-road.
Caution is advised when riding. Be sure to bring the chopper back in the same condition you received it in; we won't be happy if there is damage and neither will you. We have compiled a price list with the replacement cost for every component, so you know what to expect if you get into an accident.
We recommend that you take your time to enjoy the ride. If you follow one of the routes we have designed then you will have plenty of time to stop along the way to get a bite to eat or some refreshments, to do some sunbathing or take some photos. Do not forget to lock the choppers before leaving them.
Please follow the traffic rules. They exist for a reason.
Alcohol and drug use is not permitted during your e-chopper rental.
If you find yourself stuck and unable to continue your ride, contact us as soon as possible and we will come help you.
