Wow what a thread. One thing I noticed which I didn't think about with the
previous article is trail usage. Rick at Lynn Valley bikes told me a story
about an eBike rider who was doing laps around lost lake. They did a lap or
two to about 10 of the eBike rider. To me this just screams motor assisted is
the wrong way to go here. We'd have to dramatically increase the trail
networks to support the things.
Kaz's story about the thing causing a crash is not to be taken lightly as
well. Sure lack of familiarity is something that led to the incident. Ones
fitness and abilities acts as a natural filter. As one person mentioned they
foresee people getting into trouble much more easily then before.
In the end I think there needs to be caution here. Many people seem to be
worried about the future trail access. There have been two articles about
eBikes and many people conjecturing about the access issues. What I would like
is to have an article that investigates the trail access issue. I've been out
of that world for over a decade. There are others who have a better
relationship with the powers that control trails around here.
