Ohio Ebike Laws
Prior to January 1, 2020, Ohio law was unclear as to the vehicle status of electric bicycles. Are they motorized vehicles, and subject to the same laws as cars, trucks, and motorcycles, or are they bicycles, and subject to bicycle regulations? The answer was unclear until the 132nd Ohio General Assembly passed H.B. 250, which lays out the specific regulations that apply to electric bikes. Now, Ohioans can ride their e-bikes with confidence, thanks to the new law.
