The EcoPed CityGo is a Canadian built hybrid electric bike that scoots around for up to 60 kms per 7 hour charge. It’s hybrid because it also comes with bicycle pedals, so you can use your leg muscles if your juice runs out mid-journey. Top speed is 32 km/h, it has ABS brakes and an ignition lock, but we’re talking 59 kg in weight here, so good luck pedaling to work every day. No license needed. Priced at around C$1200.
CityGo is part of a new family of electric hybrid bicycles, capable of going anywhere regular bicycles are allowed. CityGo is great for bike lanes, paved trails and low-traffic streets. Riders can park virtually anywhere bicycle racks are available. This means free parking anywhere and at any time. Check your local bike laws before riding.
