  • 6. “Europe is the best place in the world to travel by bicycle.” For three reasons: infrastructure, infrastructure, infrastructure. There is no place on earth where there are: • so many villages, pretty towns, within a few miles from each other • so many interesting castles, churches, museums • so much history • the beautiful hotels and chateaux to stay at • all the restaurants to get great food • and above all: so many bike paths and special trails, making it the safest place to bikeCall us at 1-800-575 1540 or visit www.austinlehman.com

  • 8. By including what we call levels of difficulty in our catalog and on our website. With numbers from 1 to 5 we denote how easy or how difficult a trip is. • 1 = easy: mostly flat • 2 = moderately easy: a few hills several of the days • 3 = moderate: yet a few more hills • 4 = moderate to challenging • 5 = difficult: mountainous terrain (e.g. the Alps, the Pyrenees, the Dolomites) When in doubt, simply start with a level 1 trip.Call us at 1-800-575 1540 or visit www.austinlehman.com
  • 9. You still gotta pedal… But it will make your cycling life much easier! Regulate yourself how much support you want from the hidden electric motor (4 levels of assist) At first sight, you can‟t even tell it‟s a electric bike: the motor is in the back wheel and the battery under the back-rack. Even the Tuscan hills become quite doable for the novice cyclist. Great for families and couples too, if there‟s a big difference in the abilities amongst the family members.Call us at 1-800-575 1540 or visit www.austinlehman.com
