I've though a bit more about this and agree: with limited resources and a lack
of interest in the governing bodies to undertake the myriad of work required
to bring all policies and paperwork to be inclusive of e-bikes I understand
the lack of action. In your case, including WORCA, you can't really be faulted
What I don't understand is the anti-pragmatic view on something different.
Every argument against e-bikes so far is conjecture and nothing more. There is
absolutely no data to support any of the concerns that people have voiced
about the impact of e-bikes with the exception that an e-bike contains a motor
and motor vehicles are excluded from non-motorized trail systems; the argument
is essentially boiled down to semantics and fear. Everytime someone yells
"motor" all I see is a Trump supporter yelling "Obamacare".
The above, along with my mentality of inclusivity, is exactly why I present my
pro-ebike counterpoints. I can't stand NIMBYism and the close-mindeness that
The reality is that at some point there will be enough e-bikers (gasp…) that
they will stand up for themselves and have a voice either as part of local mtb
advocacy or through their own group. I recall something similar happening with
mountain biking not so long ago.
