CBC Interview – Electric-Assist bikes on NCC pathways

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)
and
Rules for Electric Bikes (“E-Bikes”), NCC

The interview should air today on CBC TV at 5pm and again at 6pm.

    The piece on NCC changes appears to have never made the news. I’d guess it was bumped for the dive-bombing bird story.
