Pedal Cyclists: Insurance - Question (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The noble Lord makes an excellent point. In terms of getting people out of cars and on to bikes and walking, this Government have done more than any other to promote walking and cycling. We remain fully committed to the vision that, by 2030, half of all journeys in towns or cities will be walked or cycled.

Pedal Cyclists: Insurance - Question (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I am aware of the tactic, but I was not aware that it was something that the City of London Police was doing. If it catches villains who choose to steal bicycles, then it is a very good idea and to be encouraged.

Pedal Cyclists: Insurance - Question (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I am grateful for that question from the noble Lord. The Government have no plans to implement a system of licence plates for cyclists. There are over 20 million cyclists in Great Britain, and a national licensing system for all cyclists similar to the one for cars and motorcycles would be complex and expensive to design and administer. Cycles would need to be fitted with registration plates...

Pedal Cyclists: Insurance - Question (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The noble Lord’s question is properly best directed to the Home Office in terms of enforcement, but I share his view that it does need to be enforced far more heavily than it is at this moment.

Pedal Cyclists: Insurance - Question (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: As I alluded to earlier, this Government have done more than any other to promote walking and cycling. Over £3 billion is projected to be invested in active travel up to 2025, including around £1 billion in dedicated capital and revenue investment by the department and Active Travel England in the four years up to 2023-24.

Pedal Cyclists: Insurance - Question (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The noble Lord is absolutely right, but I will not expand on what I have said in terms of the registration of cycles and licensing of riders. However, I agree that we need to look at how these things are enforced. It is a matter for the Home Office and for policing. Perhaps his efforts should be directed there.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Electric Bicycles: Sales (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: It is potentially possible to convert the vast majority of pedal cycles into e-bikes capable of exceeding 15.5mile per hour. Batteries can be used for a wide range of purposes and it would not be practically possible to differentiate those used in e-bikes from those used for other uses.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Electric Bicycles: Accidents (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: E-bikes that do not comply with the Electrically Pedal Assisted Cycles regulations, which includes a requirement for power assist to cut off at 15.5 miles per hour, are classed as mechanically propelled vehicles. As such, someone causing death by recklessly riding one would already be subject to a charge of death by dangerous driving.
