Research Results Video

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

Research Results Video

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!

Second trial underway

The second wave of commuter trials of the smart e-bikes is underway with the same Brighton-based company we worked with for the first trial. The level of interest remained high. Twenty employees have been chosen, and they currently have our smart e-bikes to use for an eight-week period. We will soon have plenty of data from both trials which we look forward to analysing over the winter.
