Electric Bikes legal in UK:
The new A2B magazine reports that the Department for Transport is now clearly stating that electric bicycles can supply power without being pedalled. This means that electric bikes in the UK are still legal, even after the crazed old prunes of the EC decided users should pedal to keep the motor running. It seems that the EU ruling would have been against the Disability Discrimination Act. Now, if only I could get my Heinzmann motor back from Kinetics in Glasgow; it’s been away for a simple repair for just over three months now 🙁
