Default Some seriously basic newbie queries

N00bie post. Please be gentle

This week I just got myself an Electra Cruiser. It looks like 4 stroke engine is the way to go for low maintenance, cleaner run, easy petrol mix, etc... I'm not much of a tinkerer - just want something that ups and goes.

But I sit here and read about bike gears and start to wonder, is this something I have to consider with my first motor bicycle engine? As the Cruiser I just bought doesn't have any - just the single sprocket.

Also, is it safe to assume I can pedal (i.e. use the bike as it was originally intended!) without having to engage the engine?

Thanks in advance for your help.
