Characteristics of an electric bicycle Do I have to pedal?
Electric bicycles, also called pedal-assist bicycles, are very similar to traditional bicycles, but with a considerable reduction in pedaling effort. For this purpose, they have a series of features, such as the incorporation of a battery, an electric motor and certain sensors in the pedals. We can put you in the picture:
- The battery, usually lithium or lead-acid, is responsible for storing the energy to provide a certain range, around 30 km.
- The accumulator, which is usually located in the middle part of the bicycle.
- The electric motor. It can be on either wheel, but is most commonly found on the rear wheel.
- The control system:
- The sensor placed on the pedals. It is the control element of the system, since it detects whether the driver is pedaling or not.
- The controller, inserted in the handlebar. Through it, the intensity of the electricity provided by the system can be regulated. In addition, it displays the battery charge.
How an electric bike works
The electric motor that pedal-assist bicycles have must have a maximum power of 250w. But this motor will only electrically assist the rider if the rider is turning the pedals.
Do I have to pedal if I ride an electric bike in Valencia? Yes, but very comfortably. Otherwise there is no mechanism to drive the motor to operate. In other words, it is pedaling with hardly any effort.
You should know that the electric assistance will be deactivated when the cyclist exceeds a speed of 25 km/h. So if you want to go faster, then you must do it with physical effort, as in conventional bikes.
Therefore, an electric bicycle will always have pedals and, at the time you decide, it can be operated solely by human traction.

- Mechanical factors. Such as, for example, tire pressure or transmission system.
- Electrical factors. Such as battery capacity and controller and motor efficiency.
- Bicycle geometry. The angles and lengths of the tubes that make it up.
- The condition and type of terrain. Slopes increase battery discharge.
- Weather Lithium batteries can be affected in their performance by low temperatures.
It is more than enough to travel around the city of Valencia without having to worry about the load.
