Have you recently seen someone riding their bike up a hill without using much effort? Maybe their bike looked hefty or had extra attachments on the frame? If so, you were most likely looking at an electric bike.
Electric bikes sometimes referred to as "e-bikes", are a growing trend in transportation. Pedaling is made easier with the help of a battery-operated mechanism. They are also cleaner and cheaper to operate than other modes of transportation.
Since e-bikes are a newer mode of transportation, regulations are still being developed. We encourage you to review our Electric Bikes page to learn more about permitted Electric Bicycle (E-Bike) use in NH and the City of Lebanon.
