Hello and welcome to our home page.

We specialise in supplying top quality fully street legal electrical assisted bicycles to the general public at realistic prices.

All of our electric bikes comply with the current regulations governing the use of Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycles (EAPCs) on UK roads.

Below is an extract from an impact assessment of a review of the Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycles regulations 1983.

This Impact Assessment (IA) relates to a review of the Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycles (EAPCs) Regulations 1983, which are currently in force across Great Britain. The Regulations set out the requirements which certain bicycles, tandem bicycles and tricycles must meet in order to be legally treated as EAPCs in Great Britain. Primary legislation states that EAPCs which meet these requirements are not legally considered to be motor vehicles. The Road Traffic Act 1988 prohibits persons under the age of 14 from driving EAPCs on roads and the Pedal Cycles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1983 set out further standards which EAPCs must meet in order to be lawfully used on roads.

The Regulations specify that in order to be classed as an EAPC the vehicle must be fitted with pedals by means of which it is capable of being propelled and that any electric motor must not be able to provide assistance when the vehicle is travelling at speeds exceeding 15mph. The Regulations further specify that EAPCs must also have a:

- maximum kerbside weight (including batteries but without rider/cargo) of 40kg for bicycles and 60kg for tandems or tricycles; and

- maximum continuous rated power output of the motor not exceeding 200W for bicycles and 250W for tandems or tricycles.

Any EAPC which complies with the above is not considered to be a motor vehicle and, as a result, is not required to be registered, display a vehicle excise disc or be insured as a motor vehicle and riders are not required to hold a valid driving licence.

All of our electric bikes comply with these regulations so anyone over 14 years old can ride them on cycle lanes or on UK roads, you don’t need a driving licence, insurance or road tax, we do recommend the use of a cycle helmet and some personal insurance for your protection.

The bikes range from a lightweight (17.5Kg) folding electric bike through to a sturdy 2 seater (35 Kg) scooter type bike, they’re all restricted to 25 KPH /15 MPH, they all have usable pedals and they all have a maximum continuous rated power output of less than 200W.

They all come with a full 12 months guarantee including motor and batteries, we do not cover for wear and tear or punctures.

The bikes are delivered in their original box’s and they’re almost fully assembled, they require a little assembling.

I’ve been asked a few questions about the bikes, so I’ll answer some of them here:

How much does it cost to recharge the batteries?.

It costs about .08p to charge the batteries from empty to full and it takes up to 5 hours.

Can I get spare parts if I need them?.

Yes we carry spare parts for all of the models that we sell.

How long does the batteries last?.

All our bikes are fitted with Lithium batteries so they can be charged from almost empty to full over 800 times before they begin to show any signs of a drop in power, they also have no memory so you can use them a little or down to almost empty without causing any damage.

Will the bikes clime a steep hill on throttle alone?.

On a level surface in normal conditions you have the choice to ride as a normal bike, to ride power assist or on throttle alone but because of the restrictions imposed on all electric bikes you will have to pedal up steep hills but this will still be much easier than on a normal bike.

If you have any more questions or you would like to have a test ride on any of our models please contact us and we’ll do our best to assist you.

Thank you for visiting our site, Ted Guerin.
