Electric Bike Policy

 

Cappuccino Cycling Club e-Bike Policy

As cycling is evolving, we are starting to see an increase in the adoption of e-Bikes. The Cappuccino Cycling Club acknowledges this and is supporting this evolution. However, as the Cappuccino Cycling Club is a “drop-bar” bike club, we will only accept the use of drop-bar e-bikes by members on club rides.

If a member, or prospective member intends to use an e-bike, they must still meet the minimum fitness requirements of the club (in case of battery failure), and also adhere to rules and riding etiquette of the club.

The rider of the e-bike also has a legal obligation to adhere to Government policy on the use of electric bikes on UK roads, details of which can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/electric-bike-rules
