Employers in Belgium are already encouraged to reward those cycling to work to the tune of €0.26 per kilometre cycled between their home and workplace.
Interestingly, the legislation will now cover speed electric bikes, capable of hitting up to 28mph/45km per hour. These bikes, under current EU regulations, are classed as mopeds and as such require tax, insurance and a suitable helmet.
In 2015 Belgium paid over 400,000 users a total of €93 million under the scheme. Figures show that those participating have more than doubled since 2009.
