Cycling is considered to be one of the most sustainable and green forms of transportation. Electric bicycles, the most popular electric vehicles, subscribe to this type of transportation, being very environmentally friendly. They have several advantages when compared to traditional bicycles, but also a weak point in terms of long battery (re)charging duration. Consequently power-saving solutions for electric bicycles are of high research interest. This paper proposes a novel V2X communication-based power-saving strategy for electric bicycles. To the best knowledge of the authors, so far, there is no work in the literature that makes use of V2X communications in the context of electric bicycles. The proposed solution involves recommendations for strategic riding when bicycles approach intersections to avoid high power consumption scenarios (e.g. stop and start due to red traffic light signal). Testing demonstrates how the proposed solution brings significant savings in terms of power consumption in comparison with a classic approach.
