Welland Valley CC warmly welcomes e-bike riders.
The club recognises the growth in e-bikes is attracting new people to cycling; and also enables existing riders to continue to enjoy their sport.
E-bike riders are welcome on club runs, social rides, sportives, audaxes, training and skills sessions and all non-competitive events.
They are also welcome to take part in any competitions with a specific category for e-bikes.
E-bikes will need to meet the following requirements:
- The electric motor should not be able to propel the bike when it is travelling at more than 15.5mph.
- The motor should have a maximum power output of no more than 250 watts.
E-bike riders should ride at the pace of the group they are with and should be familiar with – or willing to learn – the skills required for riding in a bunch or paceline.
E-bike riders should be certain they have sufficient battery reserve for the ride they have chosen.
