May 2, 2013 – Imagine yourself put-put-putting along, wind in your hair, sunshine on your face, and majestic urban scenery lining your path. A scooter from Dyad may just be what you are looking for! Easy to handle, scooters and electric bikes make parking and moving about Montréal a breeze. What’s more, Dyad offers a novel way to experience Montréal: thematic tours by scooter or electric bike. There just simply isn’t any other way to have this much fun on two wheels!
Located in the heart of the Plateau, Dyad is an electric bike and scooter rental service that gets you from point A to point B in style. Here’s how:
Choose your ride
Dyad offers a wide array of rental scooters and electric bicycles, ideal for those who have always wanted to try, but have never had the chance. Plus it’s a totally handy, eco-friendly and fun way to get about town: 100% electric, these easy-to-ride two-wheelers can be charged anywhere (just plug into a socket), parked on the sidewalk, and can zip through traffic just like a pedal bike. What’s more, you don’t even need a license if you are 18 years of age or older.
Choose your riding plan
Once you’ve got your ride, it’s time to figure out how much of a charge you’ll need. Off to run some errands or just give a moped a whirl? The Hi-Fi plan gives you up to 40 km of battery charge. Tried it before and can’t wait to try it again? Then it’s the Flying Monkey, with up to 55 km of battery charge for you. Or perhaps you’re a seasoned veteran, looking to hit the open road? The Firebird plan will get you there, with 80 km of battery charge. Rentals and plans are priced for 1 hour, 2 hours, 24 hours, 2 days or 1 week.
Choose your tour
From an evening panoramic tour of city lights to exploring Montréal’s trendiest areas, Dyad Cycle tours offer a variety of interesting ways to veer off the beaten path for a unique glimpse of the city. These guided 3-hour “hop on, hop off” scooter/bike tours take you through vibrant Montréal neighbourhoods, featuring cultural, architectural and historical highlights along the way. You can even set up your very own customized tour – just tell them what you want to see!
Dyad rental prices include helmet, lock, map and directions (if required). Complimentary training is also available for beginners. If you run into any trouble along the way, roadside service is just a call away – Dyad will be there in a flash. And finally, vehicle pick-up and drop-off can also be arranged for a modest fee.
