So you know for a fact all ebikers are noobs and haven't put shovels in the ground? That's Just like hikers saying all bikers tear up the sacred forests.
With attitudes like yours new people will not come forward to help because they risk being ridiculed for riding an ebike.
Trail associations need to welcome ebikes and their riders to help inform them on etiquette etc.
experienced people riding e-bikes will be a drop in the bucket when the flood of new riders comes. we're talking hundreds to thousands of new riders. how are a few old-school people going to influence that?
trail associations do not need to welcome e-bikes. still waiting for the e-bikers to start their own associations. oh wait, they just want to ride on the backs of the people who got us this far, without actually putting any work in.
my attitude is based upon years in the sport, and years of digging on the trails. i don't really care how it's perceived.
