PEDELEC

A pedelec (from pedal electric cycle) is a type of electric bicycle where the rider's pedalling is assisted by a small electric motor; thus it is a type of low-powered e-bike. However, unlike some other types of e-bikes, pedelecs are classified as conventional bicycles in many countries by road authorities rather than as a type of electric moped. Pedelecs include an electronic controller which cuts power to the motor when the rider is not pedalling or when a certain speed is reached.

In Greece the speed limit for classifying a pedelec as a bicycle is 25 km/h.
