Electric bicycle

January 23rd, 2019 — It kinda looks like a motorcycle on the sidewalk of Granville Street but with closer inspection you will notice his left foot is on a pedal so it really is a bicycle — specifically a mountain bike with suspension, fat tires, and an electric motor on the rear wheel — although again if you look very carefully you will notice the chain has been removed; I guess so the rider’s pedaling won’t slow him down. The rider admitted when asked that the motor was 1500 watts, three times the legal limit and considering the speed with which he disappeared down Granville Street probably capable of well over the 32kph electric bikes are limited to.
