Electric Bike

If you want to add some extra pedal power to your cycle, then you need an electric bike. E-Bikes are all the rage and by choosing one, you are joining the thousands of other cyclists that have realised that the modern electric bike is reliable, healthy (you still have to pedal) and fun. No longer are those troublesome hills a bar to your commuting to work on a cycle.

Electric Bikes or EAPCs (Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycles) are regulated by the Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycles – EAPC – (Amendment) Regulations 2015 which state that that to be classed as a pedal cycle (and thus can be used legally without: road tax, registration, a driving licence, insurance or the use of a crash helmet.) an E-bike must:

  • Be fitted with pedals capable of propelling the bike
  • Have a maximum (continuous) rated motor power of no more than 250W
  • Have a maximum speed with power assistance of 15.5mph in the UK

There are further updated rules relating to “Twist and Go” electric bikes which your cycle supplier should be able to help you with.
