THE FUTURE

An electric bike / e-bike / power-assisted bicycle / pedelec is a bicycle with an integrated electric motor and battery which can be used for propulsion. Usually, a small motor assists the rider’s pedal-power. E-bikes use rechargeable batteries and the UK speed limit is set at 15.5mph, although e-bikes can travel faster with harder pedalling or on a downhill. The markets in Germany (sales have increased sevenfold from 2007 to 2014, from 70,000 to 480,000 units per year), the Netherlands (where cyclists aged 55 to 75 account for 25% of all e-bike journeys), and China are growing at a huge rate (around 30,000,000 sales in 2014 alone).
