An electric bicycle, also known as an e-bike, is a bicycle with an integrated electric motor which can be used for propulsion. They are good for your health, your wallet and the environment. Perhaps best of all , they are really well suited to the Channel Islands. With there being quite a few hills, an electric bike makes uphill work a doddle. New e-bikes have long lasting batteries which are removable for charging and give excellent range in general.
Note that non-registered electric bikes are restricted to 15.5 mph. For guidelines see
