I was just interviewed by CBC television reporter Steve Fischer. He was interested in getting some feedback regarding today’s NCC press release about electric bikes on the NCC recreational pathways and other NCC facilities. NCC is allowing electric bikes, but not those that look more like “scooters”.
Today’s NCC press release:
New rules for electric bikes (“e-bikes”) on the Capital Pathway Network, National Capital Commission (May 24, 2012)
Rules for Electric Bikes (“E-Bikes”), NCC
The interview should air today on CBC TV at 5pm and again at 6pm.

If anyone sees this interview on TV please send feedback. I won’t be able to watch it because no TV in the shop! If you find a link on the CBC site or YouTube please feel free to forward it and I will post it here. Thanks, J.
