Electric Four Wheel Vehicle
asked: Due to my large size of 350 lbs and physical disability
affecting my balance and strength that rules out safely riding a bicycle
(neuropathy in my lower legs), I have been considering a quad recumbent with 4
wheels. This quad would likely have e-assist of some level and/or gearing
My question is: 1.) Would this qualify as a bicycle under Florida law? And 2.) Would I be allowed to ride on the various rail-to-trails paths around the state as well as roads. This would make it safe for me to ride without the strong possibility of falling. I am 70 years old.
I know quads are relatively new and not sure if they are defined yet.
Please see this post for new definitions.
Please note the three wheel requirement to be a bike or ebike.
