This paper reports on work performed at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel on Electrically assisted bicycles, first in the scope of the European E-TOUR-project, next in subsequent work in the continuation of this project. Three aspects of electrically assisted bicycles have been considered: the bicycles have been evaluated for commuting use throughout the city; the bicycles have been evaluated on a test facility developed on purpose at the university; a group of test persons out of the "ageing population" has been tested on a physiological-medical basis for evaluation of the benefits that a renewed physical activity with electric bicycles can bring. This paper focuses on the technical evaluation of the bicycles and the Human Interface.
