  • Very well thought out position, Galen and MassBike! I especially like the wording about research on “determining where differing classes of electric bicycles should and shouldn’t ride, especially for off-road natural surface trails…”

    The pushback I think you’re going to encounter is with the politics of singletrack that falls under DCR jurisdiction. NEMBA and all of the IMBA chapters are constantly fighting battles across the country to try to stop prohibition of bikes at all on trails, and if we allow motorized bikes on trails (except perhaps in certain exceptional circumstances such as for the disabled or elderly), it’s very likely that individuals who are finally relaxing in their fights against us will suddenly begin fighting us again with the argument “And now they want to allow MOTORCYCLES on trails!”
