The popularity of e-bikes on the Northern Beaches is growing. They are a fun and easy way to get around, and they are good for your health and the environment.

However, as e-bikes are fast and quiet, there is a real danger of colliding with other's on the footpath.

Remember the basics: helmet done up, bell, lights and a bike that’s legal.

And before your next ride, get to know the e-bike code.

Know the e-bike code 

  • Slow down to walking pace when others are on the path 
  • Ring your bell and call ‘on your right’ to let others know you’re approaching 
  • Be ready for sudden changes – people, pets and prams can be unpredictable

Before you head out, make sure you know the rules and have the essential information.
