E-Bike Conversion

Converting your bike to an e-bike at Mr Cycles could be a great value option to putting a spark back into your cycling!

Why not pop in and ask if we can convert your bike? If you can’t pop in to see us with your bike then email pictures of your bike to us at info@mrcycles.co.uk. Please tell us the make and model of your bike and show us the whole bike in your pictures as well as the area of the frame where the pedal axle goes through by the chain rings.







If a bike meets the EAPC requirements it’s classed as a normal pedal bike. This means you can ride it on cycle paths and anywhere else pedal bikes are allowed.

Any electric bike that doesn’t meet the EAPC rules needs to be registered and taxed. You’ll need a driving licence to ride one and you must wear a crash helmet. The vehicle will also need to be type approved to make sure it’s safe to use on the road.

To be clear, if an EAPC can be electrically propelled without pedalling, it’s known as a ‘twist and go EAPC’. A twist and go EAPC must be ‘type-approved’ to make sure it’s safe to use on the road. A type- approved vehicle will have a plate showing its type approval number.

At risk of labouring the point: you can’t ride an illegal electric bike off-road to avoid punishment. It would be like riding a motorbike over The Downs with all the legal punishments that might attract.
