According to Transport For London, an eBike “is a standard pedal cycle fitted with a battery and electric motor”. Unlike full-power or no-pedal bikes, an eBike uses a pedal assist motor instead of a hub motor. This separate motor is located towards the rear wheel where it provides the assistance. This motor typically provides the pedal-assist either by driving the wheel through the gear sprocket or by pressing against the rear tyre itself.
To be considered road-legal and able to be used on roads and cycle paths where ‘normal bicycles’ are allowed, the bicycle must have its speed restricted to 25km/h (15.5 mph) and the power cannot exceed 250 watts. Whilst it is possible to go faster than the restricted speed limit, the motor will not provide assistance above this speed, so you’ll be entirely reliant on your ‘leg power’.
An electric bike may be a great option for those looking for an efficient and convenient form of transportation. For one, electric bikes are able to reach speeds up to twenty-five miles per hour, allowing you to get from place to place much faster than on a traditional bike. Furthermore, they require much less effort to pedal since they provide extra cushioning and assistance with pedalling due to the battery-operated motor system. This means that users can travel farther distances with less fatigue and exhaustion than when riding a standard bike. Last but not least, electric bikes are environmentally friendly, reducing transportation emissions in comparison to other methods of transportation.
