Ottawa - Larger e-bikes banned from NCC pathways

Electric-powered vehicles, including heavier "scooter-type" e-bikes, are now prohibited from National Capital Commission pathways, according to a report issued by the NCC on Thursday. "Power-assisted bicycles that are physically similar to conventional bicycles" are still allowed on pathways, the NCC says, but "scooter-type power-assisted bicycles (i.e. with a fairing) are prohibited." (A fairing is a rigid plastic covering to deflect wind and rain or to reduce drag.)
