Can I ride an ebike on STP?
Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to coordinate and streamline this aspect of the ride. Additionally, all e-riders must be self sufficient, and are responsible for charging their bikes and carrying the tools they need. A small number (20) of complimentary charging stations will be available at the Centralia College bike corral for overnight charging. Batteries must be left on the bikes while they charge.
We have volunteer support crews throughout the ride, however, we do not require that they be well versed in ebikes. We cannot guarantee that they will be able to fix mechanical problems on ebikes. Additionally, our support vehicles may not have bike racks that can carry the additional weight of an ebike.
