All about e-bikes

Power-assisted cycles are pedalled in the same way as a standard push bike but, at the flick of a switch, you can engage the electric motor to give you a bit of a boost! E-bikes are ideal for commuting, shopping or exploring the countryside. Delivering power through a traditional throttle mounted on the handlebars or a switch or button depending on the model, e-bikes allow the rider to maintain a speed of 15mph without too much effort!

Electric bikes:

  • can be ridden by anybody over the age of 14;
  • don’t require insurance or road tax;
  • can be parked for free;
  • produce zero emissions – although of course some CO2 is created when the batteries are charged.

Whichever cycle you choose we believe once you've tried an ebike you won’t look back.

Ebikes costing less than £1000 are eligible for the Government Cycle to Work Scheme which allows employees to save around 40% on the cost of a new bike.

Electric cycles are available in a number of styles, including ‘shoppers’, folding bikes and off-road models. Visit the E-Motion online shop to find out more.
