Around 150 to 200km depending on the models (please note that it greatly depends on how fast you ride and break!).

Anyone as long as you do it safely for you and others.

It really varies the type of electric bike you decide to ride, but the fastest can go up to 70km/h. Note that this is still a bike, so if you go downhill, you can go as fast a normal bike.
