Simon Cowell crashed on an e-bike, again. This time, it was an M1 Sporttechnik Das Spitzing Evolution S-Pedelec, a Class 3 e-bike. He was riding it near his home in West London when he hit a wet patch of pavement and the bike came out from under him, slamming him into the ground. He wasn’t wearing a helmet, and he broke his arm and lacerated his face.

A source told the Sun tabloid that Cowell bled so much his face looked like “something from Phantom of the Opera.” He went to the hospital where his arm was put in a cast and was diagnosed with a badly bruised cheek and a possible concussion, but was released the same day.


Simon Cowell shows the broken arm he suffered in a bicycle injury last week as he and his partner, Lauren Silverman, leave their home in London’s Holland Park.


We covered his previous crash on a machine that wasn’t exactly an electric bicycle, the Swind EB-01, a bike we actually tested and labeled as the scariest bike we’d ever ridden, and fully understand how that accident happened.

The 62-year-old Cowell is expected to make a full recovery.
