"If its an electric bicycle, he explains, you can ride it without a licence or insurance, and most of the time its regulated in the same way. You can park it on the sidewalk in the same way as a normal bike. With a top speed of no more than 32 kilometres per hour and an engine output of no greater than 500 watts, electric bicycles can be ridden by anyone over 16 years of age, provided they wear a helmet. This includes models that look like scooters but have the telltale pedals sticking out the sides, for supplemental power. These are classed as power-assisted bicycles by Transport Canada, and can also be ridden without a specific motorcycle licence. They usually have a range of no more than 50 kilometres.
