This video summarises the results and policy implications of our e-bike research in the UK. When an e-bike is made available, many people choose to use it, and it has substantial effects on their travel behavior. This is likely to result in reduced carbon emissions, lower congestion and an increase in health and wellbeing. Our study gave electrically-assisted bikes to 100 people, for 6-8 weeks each (commuters of 2 large employers+community groups). The ‘smart’ monitoring system recorded and transmitted bike usage data, used with survey+interview data. Watch the video for more results!
