The BCC originally made a decision to restrict the type of of e-bikes that could participate in the Horsey Hundred this year due to insurance coverage limitations that we recently became aware of. Since that decision was made, our insurance coverage situation has not changed (and is described in greater detail below) but based on input from registered cyclists, and further research and discussion, our Board has decided to allow e-bike riders to participate this year as they have in the past.
We changed our decision because we learned that many of you cannot join us if we restrict the use of e-bikes, and because we really do not have the ability to adequately monitor and check the bikes participants are using in the Horsey Hundred, we cannot effectively prohibit the use of some categories of e-bikes from participating, while allowing others.
So you can better understand our concerns and the issue we are facing with regard to our insurance coverage, here is the situation - Our insurance policy excludes from our general liability coverage the following:
“Activities involving mopeds or any other vehicle with a non-manual power source; however, this exclusion does not apply to activities involving low speed electric bicycles that meet the definition of the Consumer Products Safety Commission and that provide battery-powered assistance while pedaling.”
The definition of a low speed electric bicycle referred to above from the Consumer Products Safety Commission is as follows:
“A two-or three-wheeled vehicle with fully operable pedals and an electric motor of less than 750 watts (1 h.p.), whose maximum speed on a paved level surface, when powered solely by such a motor while ridden by an operator who weighs 170 pounds, is less than 20 mph.”
As you can see, this definition isn’t particularly helpful or clear –for example, if a 120-pound person is involved in an incident on a bike that COULD travel 28 mph but at the time of the incident, she was riding at 14 mph are we covered? Lots of questions for sure, and one of the reasons we decided that we really can’t even define what would qualify and what wouldn’t, and why we’ve made the decision we have.
If you plan to ride an e-bike, and your bike can be programmed so that it will not travel faster than 20 mph, please program your bike to conform to these standards. If your bike will go faster, please don’t ride it faster (understanding that you may be faster going down hills). And we are sure that those of you who ride e-bikes already do this, but this event may be bigger than what you’re used to, so please be especially aware when you are near people riding bikes without motors, how your bike may perform differently –and that they may not be aware of that. Communication is key in all cases –we want everyone to have an enjoyable experience and to remain safe.
