Here are some details about electric bikes:, (A selection available at the bottom of the page)

An electric bike, also known as an e-bike, is a type of bicycle that uses an electric motor to assist with propulsion. The motor is usually powered by a rechargeable battery and can provide varying levels of assistance, from minimal to full power. Some e-bikes are designed to be completely motor-driven, while others require the rider to pedal to activate the motor.

E-bikes are a popular mode of transportation for commuting, running errands, or leisure riding. They are a more environmentally friendly option compared to traditional vehicles as they emit no harmful pollutants and consume less energy.

In the UK, e-bikes are classified as electrically assisted pedal cycles (EAPCs) and are subject to certain regulations. For example, the motor must have a maximum power output of 250 watts and the bike must not be capable of speeds higher than 15.5 mph when the motor is in use. Riders do not need a license or insurance to ride an e-bike on the road, but they must be at least 14 years old.
