A 30 mile round trip would allow for a good few hills to be climbed.

there is a famous mountain climb in the USA that professionals race up each year , nearly 30 miles climbing.

The record ascent is for a non sense professional cyclist , having a heart bypass and stents fitted , in his fifties on an electric bike.

They are that good.

The bikes that is.

Cheers for all your help on this

Think I have located a place near me in Spain who rents them out so will give it a go next month and report back

The area we are in is massive for cycling with many professional teams using it for event training. There's definitely a priority given to bikes on the B roads in our region so that with the gorgeous scenery and frequent quaint villages make it a very attractive pastime

Re: E Bikes

Good luck mate , check the battery on a hire bike , they are often knackered and run out of power quickly.

You need high tyre pressures on an e bike , talk to the hirer and ensure they are correctly inflated.

Re: E Bikes

Straying slightly off the subject of electric Bikes and their wattage before having to be registered, do the same wattage rules apply to mobility scooters?

And What is the maximum wattage before one has to be registered

EDIT:
Ok I think I got the information I wanted which is if less than a maximum motor wattage of 250Watts or/and less than 25kph then registration is not required.

Quote:
In Summary All electric bikes with a power output over 250watts and/or with a higher maximum speed of 25 kph must be registered as a ”up to 49cc petrol m/cycle.”

When the rules first came out up to 2490 wat ok, Now the speed is involved, if it can reach more than 25 klm regardless of wat you need a plaka.

With the requirement for a plaka does this mean that insurance is also required?

Re: E Bikes

Yes. Plus a helmet! Basically the rules are the same as a 50cc bike or scooter....
