Summer E-Bike Riding Tips: Your Guide to Safe and Enjoyable Rides

Riding an e-bike during the summer can be an exhilarating experience, but it also comes with its own set of challenges. Here are some essential tips to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable ride on your RUNDEER e-bike this summer.

1. Sun Protection Measures

Sun protection is crucial when riding in the summer. Even on cloudy days, UV rays can be strong and harmful. Here’s how to stay protected:

Riding Gear:

  • Cycling Clothes: Wear UV-protective clothing, preferably in light colors to reflect sunlight. Opt for moisture-wicking fabrics to keep you dry and comfortable. Long sleeves or arm sleeves paired with short sleeves can provide extra protection without overheating.
  • Cycling Glasses: Protect your eyes with cycling glasses that offer UV400 protection to shield against harmful rays.
  • Helmet: Always wear a helmet. In the summer, choose one with good ventilation and a bug net. A moisture-wicking headband or cap can help absorb sweat.


  • Choose Wisely: Use outdoor sports sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. Reapply every two hours, especially if you are sweating heavily.

2. Adjust Your Riding Schedule

Avoid the midday heat to prevent sunburn and heat exhaustion. The best times to ride are early in the morning or late in the afternoon when the sun is lower, and temperatures are cooler.

  • Morning Rides: Start early to enjoy cooler temperatures.
  • Evening Rides: Plan your rides for late afternoon or evening.
  • Midday Breaks: If you must ride during midday, take breaks in shady areas to cool down and hydrate.

3. Route Selection

Choose routes that provide shade and are less trafficked for a more comfortable and safer ride.

  • Shaded Paths: Look for routes with plenty of tree cover.
  • Flat Terrain: Flat routes reduce the risk of overheating and fatigue.
  • Rest Stops: Plan your ride to include frequent rest stops where you can cool down and rehydrate.

4. Stay Hydrated

Hydration is key in hot weather. Aim to drink 2,000 to 3,000 ml of water per day (3-5 bike water bottles) depending on your activity level.

  • Frequent Sips: Don’t wait until you’re thirsty. Drink small amounts regularly.
  • Electrolytes: Replace lost salts and minerals with sports drinks or electrolyte tablets.

5. Prevent Tire Blowouts and Brake Failure

High temperatures can increase the risk of tire blowouts and reduce brake efficiency. Here’s how to mitigate these risks:

Tire Maintenance:

  • Check Tire Pressure: Keep your tires at the recommended pressure, but be cautious not to overinflate. Heat can cause air expansion and increase the risk of blowouts.
  • Inspect Tires: Regularly check for signs of wear and tear and replace old tires promptly.

Brake Maintenance:

  • Brake Efficiency: Heat can cause brake pads to lose effectiveness. Use your brakes intermittently on long descents to prevent overheating.
  • Rest Periods: During long rides, take breaks to let your brakes cool down.

Avoid parking your e-bike in direct sunlight. The heat can cause tire patches to fail and soften the outer tire, increasing the risk of punctures.

By following these tips, you can enjoy your summer rides on the Attack 10 e-bike while staying safe and comfortable. Happy riding!
