    Get excited, but not too excited. That order only applies to the interior dept lands, BLM and national parks, not national forest. Hopefully the NF will follow suite soon.

    All this means is that there will be another group of public land users who will get yelled at for being on perfectly legal trails because someone doesn't think they are worthy.. It will at least spread the hate around a bit so it won't all be reserved for just trail riding motorcyclists. the non-assist MTNBIKERS are gonna FREAK!

    I say F' 'em! The guys/gals that bitch whine and moan about sharing the trail are the worst! If they're not complaining about the e-Bikes they'd be bitching about hikers being on "their trails" or horses, or dirtbikes or salamanders or whatever. I used to be bike into MTBs in the 90s up until about 2010, and they are the least inclusive group when it comes to sharing trails. Some places if you didn't help build the trails the Mt. Bikers didn't want you using their trails :patch the arrogance of "cyclists" is one of the worst in any "community" that I've ever been part of.

    I really hope that eBike sales skyrocket and people who have always wanted to ride some epics get a chance to that were physically unable, or some old timers can keep on riding.

    That is good news. As far as I know, Boulder still doesn’t allow them on some trails.

    It depends on who built the trails. Dig or stfu.

    reminds me of the encounters I have had on Slick Rock trail in Moab, created by motorcyclists. Most when informed of that fact , they didnt know, Be respectful of all users.!!!!!
