WORCA's position is that we are advocates for non-motorized mountain bike
recreation and we consider e-bikes motorized. We are not necessarily against
them in all places, however in our area we managed, maintain and build trails
for non-motorized users and all of our new authorized construction is for non-
motorized users, and we ask that the public respect that. Most of the trails
we managed will have this reflected on the signage over the coming season.
Personally I tend to agree with Dave's assessment, that there are places they
shouldn't be looked at as a problem, but there are many busy, mixed-use areas
that should remain steadfastly non-motorized, much like there are places and
trails that should remain no bikes. The fact remains imo, existing advocacy
groups and clubs should not be expected by the industry and e-bike proponents
to be responsible for any potential negative ramifications that lead from
increased popularity of these devices.
