Definitely NOT!

Although this seems like an obvious question, there are a lot of people who equate a moped/scooter to a bicycle and are unsure of the laws.

Generally speaking, if your bike needs a license plate (i.e., registration and insurance), you should consider it "the same as a car". That means "if you can't do something with a car, don't do it with your bike either".

Even bicycles are not allowed on sidewalks in Manitoba so powered vehicles are no different.

What about electric bikes/scooters?
There are some newer electric bicycles/scooters which have very low speeds and have a small enough wheel-base that they are considered bicycles under the law. Even these bikes, which may not require a license/insurance/registration, are not allowed on the sidewalk.
