University of West England launches e-bike usage survey

The University of West England has launched a national survey in an attempt to gauge the UK’s usage and opinion on this emergent trend. 

The survey asks:
– Why do people buy or borrow e-bikes – or not?
– What type of trips do people buy and use e-bikes for (e.g. commuting, leisure, work travel)?
– What types of people might buy and use an e-bike?
– The experience of using an e-bike

Full survey details are below. To take part, click here.


Do you live in the UK, and have you ever used, or considered using, an e-bike (an electrically-assisted cycle with pedals)? If so, this survey is for you. (We are interested in your responses even if you have not yet used an e-bike.)

E-bike sales have been growing; we certainly see more on the roads nowadays, but who is riding them, and why, or why not? Can you help us to find out? This national survey is being conducted by the University of the West of England, as part of this project. The findings will be used to write a report, and a brief summary for everyone who takes part; the individual data will be kept confidential and will not be passed to any other party.

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. For more information, contact Steve Melia.
