Like Mr Simmons has said above much speculation on many different fronts makes this a very complicated subject.
As a builder of the Shore my worst fears are already front and center and I see E-bikes accelerating what is going on the shore. We now have a potential
user group that without much effort getting into areas that were previously earned through hard work and many hard learned experiences.
Will this new user group demand a easy access up and down? who can say... But we are losing iconic features that define the shore each and every year.
Will motorized e-bikes be the tipping point on previously safe trail features that were fine to ride with human powered bikes?
This is not speculation on my part. We are actually being mandated by land mangers in removing iconic features that have always been the part of the shore.
little by little we lose what comes to easy.
