The answer to that is it depends on the classification of the e-bike.

Some e-bikes come with throttles, like the e-bikes that we make here at Sixthreezero. You actually have the option to do full-throttle on the e-bike, meaning, you do not have to pedal at all. Now, that is not true of all e-bikes. Some e-bikes are just pedal assist, meaning, you have to pedal for the motor to actually kick in. In those cases, if they don't come with a throttle, there will literally be no way to engage the motor at all other than pedaling. So in the case of those e-bikes, you cannot ride them without pedaling. Now, to answer the broad question, can you ride an electric bike without pedaling? The answer is some, and those types of e-bikes are like the ones that we produce. And these e-bikes typically will have a throttle, either a twist throttle or a thumb throttle in addition to having the pedal-assist portion.

So you would have the option to peddle if you'd like to, and the motor can give you assistance, or you can turn the motor off and just pedal the bike, or you can just do the throttle, don't peddle it all and the e-bike will take you. And generally, with those though, you're limited to no more than 20 miles an hour with the full throttle. So with the pedal assist, you can go up to 28 with the full throttle, you can not go more than 20 miles an hour on an e-bike without peddling at all. And actually, we have a video where I take an e-bike on a 21-mile journey, I do not peddle one bit. I just use the throttle. You can look that up on our YouTube channel. I believe it's How Far Will An E-Bike Go Without Pedaling?

And so, we actually see how long can we go on the e-bike without pedaling and I go through PCH on the coast and I go through Laguna Beach. It's pretty cool. Just throttle. So to answer the question, can you ride an electric bike without pedaling? The answer is yes, you just have to find the right type of electric bike. If you're interested in an electric bike like that with a full-throttle, check out the e-bikes on our website,, and navigate over to the electric bike section and you'll find all those models there you can ride without pedaling all.
