No; you cannot have a bike with a motor

posing at the phl art museum From our earlier trips I learned (and still learn) what I wanted- and more importantly- what I needed in a bike. First let me say(and I'm by no means an expert, so YMMV)- if you don't know any better it won't matter much. The first bike I toured on was an Arette GT hybrid with standard gearing. It worked fine through some hilly Pennsylvannia countryside, though a granny gear would have been nice. My kids rode department store mountain bikes. However; we never did more than 25 miles a day. Next year I stepped up to a Fuji TourII, that's when I began to wonder how I managed to even pedal the GT around the block. My Fuji is set up for touring; lower gearing, nice handling. The only thing I don't like about it is the drop bars; I can't get comfortable riding the drops, so the only time I hunched over that far was when I had to stop. This led to my final (at least according to my husband) mount, an Easy Racer Tour Easy , a recumbent. I love it. The TE is what I'm taking on the trip. My daughter will ride the EZ-1 'bent that I purchased with the TE.
