The electric bike laws in Melbourne are very similar to other areas in Australia. In 2012 Terry Mulder MP, the Minister for Public Transport announced the change to the Victorian Road Rules. This allowed certain types of electric bikes to be used in the same way as regular bicycles. This means that wherever you can ride a bike, you can also ride an ebike.
Melbourne has a whopping 135 km’s of bicycle paths, both on and off road, perfectly suited for electric bikes. Whether you need to get into the city for work, or want to take your ebike around the Melbourne sights. There is something for everyone to enjoy!
