Transport Research Laboratory white paper recommends electric bikes

With governments around the world hopeful that roads will become less reliant on cars, within the white paper under the “Future Approaches” segment are two banners recommending the promotion of active travel as a solution, as well as research that outlines the potential of the electric bike in reducing car mileage.

In one study the TRL Academy ran alongside 80 Brighton-based volunteers, e-bikes were loaned for a six-to-eight-week period. At the end of that trial three quarters of subjects were shown to have used their bikes to ride 15 to 20 miles per week on Brighton’s mixed terrain, with an average of 20% less miles traveled by car.

Furthermore, 70% of participants said they would then be interested in an electric bike in the near future.
