So EAPCs – electric bikes or e-bikes in common parlance – must now meet the following criteria in order to have the same legal standing as regular non-assisted bicycles and to be allowed on roads, bike paths and other places where bicycles are allowed under UK law.
You can ride on roads, bike paths and other places where bicycles are allowed under GB law. You don't need to register the bike as you would a motor vehicle, including mopeds and motor bikes, or have insurance or wear a helmet. One more thing, the law states you must be over 14 years of age to ride an e-bike on public roads.
In reality, that law has long been considered out of date and policing of e-bikes was largely centred around their compliance with the EU law for pedelecs, EN15194. That legislation allows for a motor with a maximum continuous rated power of 250W.
The law regarding electric bikes for the use on public rights of way in the UK and the EU is now very clear. Electric bikes (EAPCs) should conform to EN15194. Please note that the legislation regarding electric bikes in Northern Ireland differs to that in the rest of the UK.
