Have you seen Electric Bikes in Toronto? They look kind of like scooters, but a bit more bare bones in styling, with big wide pedals sticking out the side:
Whether or not you’ve seen them, or like them, or think they have a right to use bikelanes, you’re about to see a lot more of them. Electric Bike manufacturer and retailer Daymak has just opened up two new stores in Toronto (at Richmond & Jarvis and Bloor & Dundas).
Whether it’s higher gas prices, higher TTC fares, or concern for the environment, this is a sign that we will all be seeing a lot more “E-Bikes” on the road.
Oh, and some of them look like normal bikes too.
