I remain torn on this topic. On the one hand is the “hey if it helps people get outside” argument, especially when it applies to those among us that may be rehabbing from a serious injury, or those with cardiovascular issues. (I know riders in both camps.)  But being a rider of 30 years, and one who’s paid close attention to issues of access, I have my reservations about this potential new crop of riders. Will my local laps - steep and forboding - become tracked out by those with e-assist?  At what point does my paranoia devolve into plain old NIMBYism? For now our local mountain is off limits to ebikes but it seems that the electrons are coming....
