Bike Europe & LEVA-EU Electric Bike Information Meeting at Eurobike 

Come and join us for lunch at the Bike Europe - LEVA-EU information meeting on electric bikes on Thursday 31st August at Eurobike. 

Electric bicycles in the EU are subject to a lot of complicated rules: type-approval, CE-standards, the Machinery Directive, helmet obligation, insurance, traffic code, ... If you are manufacturing, importing or selling electric bikes in Europe, you may well be lost in this maze of rules.

Bike Europe and LEVA-EU are teaming up to help you find your way in this legislative maze and to answer all your questions on electric bike rules in the EU.

Should your electric mountain bikes be type-approved? Can you produce electric cargo bikes with more than 250W? Do speed pedelec riders have to wear a moped helmet in the countries where you are active? Do they have to have insurance and a number plate for their speed pedelecs?  These and many more questions will be answered at the Bike Europea and LEVA-EU Electric Bike Information Meeting. 

To ensure that your questions are answered at this meeting, send them in beforehand, by email to a.roetynck@pandora.be.

Some time soon the European Commission will be reviewing the factor 4 requirement for speed pedelecs in the type-approval. This is the requirement which stipulates that the power of speed pedelecs should be no more than 4 times the power which the cyclist puts into the bike him/herself. In anticipation of the Commission's review and for his PhD-thesis at KU Leuven (B), Bram Rotthier has done scientific research into factor 4. At this meeting, he will present a summary.

So, unless you think you know everything about related EU rules and legislation, participating in this information meeting is a must for anybody working in the electric bike business. Join us for this meeting over a sandwich and a coffee. To make sure that there is enough to eat and drink for everybody, please register by clicking below.
