Join MassBike to Chat Trails & E-Bikes at the MassTrails Conference

From November 9th to 12th, the Massachusetts Department of Recreation & Conservation and the Massachusetts Recreational Trails Advisory Board are hosting the 2022 MassTrails Conference. The conference includes a variety of interactive field trips, hands-on workshops, and educational plenary sessions covering all things trails across Massachusetts. While the field trips and workshops will be held across the state from November 9th through 11th, the plenary sessions will take place on Saturday, November 12th at Great Wolf Lodge in Fitchburg. For trail advocates across Massachusetts, this is a “can’t miss” event.

MassBike will be bringing our expertise to the conference with one of the field trip sessions on Friday, November 11th. MassBike Executive Director, Galen Mook, will be hosting “E-Bikes and Increasing Access to Trails Across the Commonwealth” at Herter Park in Boston from 2:00 p - 4:00 pm. His presentation will address some of the concerns and confusion around electric-assist bicycles and other micromobility devices and discuss the users of these devices and their dependence on low-speed electric motors to access our parks, trails, and active transportation corridors. Join Galen to learn more about e-bike definitions, the increase in ridership and diversity of who is riding e-bikes and why, and how we can increase equitable access to trails without increasing conflicts between current and future trail users.
