With an electric bicycle it becomes even easier because you get some extra help on the slopes.

If you cycle at a relaxed, leisurely pace, you can expect a distance of 15 km to take about one hour.

The choice of clothes, of course, depends on what season you spend on your bike ride and how long you plan to be away. An approved bicycle helmet (preferably called Mips helmet), a windproof jacket and a pair of padded bicycle pants are a good foundation regardless. It is also wise to bring a nice sweater as a change when you stop by and take a break.
For autumn and winter cycling it is nice with a thin windproof cap under the helmet, galongalos / shoe covers that keep wet and cool away and a pair of warm gloves. During the darker seasons of the year, it is also important to have good reflections so that you are properly visible.
