An e-bike is a bicycle that is mainly powered by human energy but assisted by a maximum continuous rated electric motor of up to 300 watts. It is limited to 25 km/h. All other e-bikes are regarded as motorised vehicles. For a full definition, see Section 5 – Network Principles, 2016 Open Space Access Plan (113KB PDF).
