Cam, I know that you are making a counterpoint to the 'no motors allowed'
viewpoint of Ebike detractors. Just because motors are 'acceptable' on
chairlifts or in a shuttle truck, doesn't change whether or not the bikes
themselves should (or not) be allowed motorized access to bike trails.
You can't shuttle the trails I usually ride, and they are better for it. If
they were shuttle accessible, I'd probably shuttle them, because I AM lazy,
and I know others would too. Then they'd be the same awful trenches that
define beaten down trails, needing years of TAP-like resurrection. One of the
big issues bike trails face around here is Moto access - trails used by Motos
are nobodies idea of fun to pedal.
Ebikes are not appropriate on any trail that is a pedal bike trail. I'm
willing to bet that even some of the super armoured Seymour and Fromme trails
would see extra wear and tear with extended use by Ebikes; and if they do then
what of the rest?
It wasn't cool when it was that Emotorbike with Monster Ts on, it's not cool
I hope I'm not being too knee jerky or accusatory towards you - and I hope
that you don't feel that this is personal.
