What is an electric bike

What is an Electric Bike……..?

Electric bikes are a new and promising alternative form of urban

transportation. They provide all the advantages of a regular

bicycle: fun exercise, free parking, zero emissions, and freedom

from gridlock, while eliminating one of the bicycle's more serious

drawbacks, lack of power. Imagine pedaling up a hill as

comfortably as riding down, that's what the e-bike experience is all

about. In most situations in the city, riding an electric bike will be

faster and cheaper than either car or public transit.

Ten good reasons to use an electric bike

Ten good reasons to use an electric bike…

Faster travel

Faster Travel

An electric bike can maintain a higher average

speed than a bicycle, yet take advantage of the full

network of cycle facilities, giving access to routes that

cars and motorcycles cannot reach. The result is often a

Faster door-to-door journey time than any other mode.

And by nipping along the relatively uncongested cycle

network, but eliminating hills and headwinds, electric

bikes tend to be the most consistent mode of travel.

No sweat

No Sweat!

Sweat may not be a serious issue when you’re out for a leisure

ride, but it’s more important if you’re cycling to work, and

arriving at work sticky puts a lot of people off cycling. Oddly

enough, you won’t sweat on an electric bike, even if you put in the

same amount of effort as you do on an ordinary bike. This is a

matter of physics as well as exertion – higher road speed and

greater air flow mean instant sweat evaporation. In hot weather,

it’s possible to maintain a normal schedule by transferring a bit

more load to the electric motor. In colder weather – or if you feel

in need of exercise – just throttle back, or turn the motor off.



It sounds unlikely, doesn’t it? But the mathematics is

compelling. Think of a steep and busy road, with cars

climbing at 30mph. If you previously slogged up the hill

At 6mph, but can tackle the same gradient at 12mph

with an electric bike, you will see 33% fewer cars, and

they will pass you at 18mph rather than 24mph. Or at

least, we think that’s correct. Whatever the figures,

there’s no doubt that an electric bike helps to keep you

out of danger. The same general principle applies to

road junctions and roundabouts – the faster your

acceleration, the sooner you can get out of trouble.

Hill climbing

Hill Climbing

That may sound obvious, but it’s the primary advantage. A good

electric bike effectively flattens hills, increasing your average speed

and eliminating the ‘groan’ factor when a gradient comes into view.

Provided you supply a reasonable amount of effort, you can expect

to climb hills of 1:10 (10%) on an electric bike with ease, and clear

a maximum gradient of 1:7 (14%), or even 1:4 (25%) with the right

bike. In hilly country, the effect is nothing short of miraculous.

Electric bike running costs

Electric Bike Running Costs

Purchase cost is a little more than a conventional

bike, mechanical wear and tear is about the

same, and electricity is so cheap as to be largely

irrelevant, but there is an extra expense in terms

of battery depreciation. Consequently, an electric

bike costs more to run – typically 8 – 12 pence per

mile against 3 – 7 pence per mile for a non-assisted

bike.. However, electric bike running costs should

really be compared with those of a moped, car, or

public transport, typically 20-40p per mile by bus, 20-

60p by train and 30-150p for a small car.

Motorized but no red tape

Motorized, but no Red Tape!

Electric bikes are bicycles in the eyes of the law, so

they require no tax, insurance, MoT or license. You can

ride one while disqualified, or after a couple of pints…

at your own risk, of course. You CAN get into trouble,

but nothing you do will affect your driving license

providing the bike is within the law. You are of course

free to insure the machine if you wish, but there’s no

compulsion to do anything but enjoy yourself!

Personal fitness

Personal Fitness

Surely a conventional bike will keep you fitter? That, of

course, depends how much – if at all – you use it.

Research has found that 46% of conventional bikes are

used only once or twice a week, with a further 30% being

used once a fortnight or even less. The figures confirm

our experience that an electric bike typically gets used at

Least twice as often as a conventional machine. Because

riding an electric bike is a great deal more enjoyable in

hilly country, into strong winds, or when carrying heavy

loads, users tend to make better use of them. The motor

provides up to half the effort, but more regular use

means more exercise for the rider.

Electric bike fuel consumption

Electric Bike Fuel Consumption

Electric bikes are the most fuel efficient mode of transport in everyday use. Typical fuel consumption is 8-16 watt-hours per mile, or something like a tenth as much as a small motorcycle. In old money, that’s the equivalent of 800-2,000mpg.



This is a bit weird, but the evidence is very

compelling. Ride a normal bicycle and you will

have to top up with extra calories at Tescos.

Producing and transporting that food takes a lot

of energy, and it’s typically more than the electric

bike battery needs to do the same amount of

Work. Depending on the source of the electricity

and the air-miles of the food, an electric bike is

responsible for 5.8-13.7g/CO2 per mile, and a

normal bike 10.5-18.5/CO2 per mile .


High resale value

High Resale Value

At £400-£2,000, an electric bike costs more to

buy than a conventional machine, but

they tend to hold their value, so you get more of

Your money back when you move on.
