Electric Bikes otherwise known as E-bikes are electronically powered bicycles. There are different types of E-bikes but the only type that is allowed in the UK is the Pedelec (Pedal Electric Cycle). The Pedelec looks like an ordinary bicycle in that it has two peddles that are used to start the bike and to propel the bike once the engine has reached its cut off point (15mph). In the UK the engine can be no more powerful than 200 watts.
The rules vary slightly in the EU, the main difference being that the bikes can be no more powerful than 250 watts.
When using an E-bike you should check the exact rules for the country you are in as they vary from country to country. For use in the UK you ought to go on the Direct Gov website to find out the UK government’s exact specifications.
At SportsCover Direct we provide E-Biking insurance to UK and Irish residents wanting to do the sport in their country of residence and abroad.
