What is an e-bike?
An electric bike is just like a normal bike, with the addition of an electric motor and controller and battery. You still have to pedal, but the electric motor can assist you in driving. They’re not only efficient and useful, they’re also great fun!

The law on electric bikes
There are a few regulations with electric bikes that you need to know about:
●You can use an e-bike anywhere that you’re able to ride a regular bike, and you only need the same safety equipment you’d wear on a normal bike, too.
●An electric bike shouldn’t weigh more than 40kg.
●The maximum power output of the motor can’t be more than 250 Watts, maximum speed less than 15.5 miles per hour.
●You’ve got to be at least 14 years old if you want to ride one on a public road.
How fast can they go?
E-bikes can power you along at up to 15.5 miles per hour ( 25km/h). Of course, you can go faster than that, but you’ll need to put in the legwork if you want to! They make a huge difference when it comes to accelerating up to a good speed, making them perfect for stop-start urban cycling.
Battery capacity and voltage
When you’re choosing an electric bike, you’ll normally see some figures for the electric motor to tell you how powerful it is. There are two figures you should look at:
Battery capacity in amp hours – This tells you how much energy the battery can store – a higher number means that you can travel further on a single charge.
Motor power – This tells you how powerful the motor is. The amount of power an e-bike can produce is limited by local law, so this is usually similar for different bikes. Of course, the more powerful your motor, the more quickly you can empty your battery!
A good e-bike will have multifunction depending on whether you just need a bit of help to cruise speed or you want more of a push up the hills.
Charging an e-bike
When it’s time to charge the battery on your e-bike, simply plug it into a household socket or wall outlet. You can buy e-bikes with different sizes of battery depending on how long your journey will be, but some bikes can get between 40 and 50 miles from a single charge. Of course, if you prefer you can just turn up the power to get more speed and help on the hills instead.
