Electric bike rider is taken off roads

AN ELECTRIC bike rider has taken off the road for a year and fined, after being caught twice driving without insurance, without a licence and without a helmet in the first case of its kind in Guernsey.

Anyone riding an electrically-assisted bicycle more powerful that 250 watts or with a top speed of more than 15.5mph needs these documents.

David Hutchinson’s electrically-assisted mountain bike could travel up to 33mph, police found when they tested it.
