    E bikes?

    Can you ride e bikes on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail? I want to buy my wife one?

    Ebikes are currently a very touchy subject. Many land managers are currently wrestling with how they should be classified and there is currently no consensus. Everyone has a different opinion and where they are allowed changes back and forth at a pretty high rate. Just because they are legal or illegal someplace today doesn't mean the same will hold true tomorrow.

    If you want my personal opinion I think they will eventually be classified as a motor vehicle when the dust eventually settles if for no other reason than it's the easiest place to draw the line. Ebike manufacturers are not doing themselves any favor in classifying as they continue to blur the line between bicycle and motorcycle.

    Anyhoo.... that's my 2 cents.

    Anybody wanna give me grief because I'm riding trails in Moab on an E-bike? Well kiss my ass and call the cops.
    Every now and then you gotta throw 'em a bone.

    Ebikes are a lot like dating a porn star and skipping the sex.

    ROFLMAO

    You should take that attitude up Millcreek on an odd day. There's an old lady waiting to ram her trekking pole where the sun don't shine.

    Here some info for you boys to chew on. Had an attorney i run around with have one of his clerks do a little research. He says the Forest Service has banned class 2 bikes. He also says as usual Gov agencies have stepped beyond what Congress has passed to create their own policies. His opinion is at some point somone will legally challenge....... he wants me to get the forest service to right me a ticket and he'd like to go to court and see how the forest service would defend their position. He has been unable to find anything as far as a written document on why the BLM has banned e bikes. He called them today but they have not returned his call.
    We took whole trailer of non motorized vehicles (according to congress) and motorized vehicles to George a couple of weeks ago and had a riot. We rode about every mtn bike trail there as well as rode the dunes at Sandhollow. Great 4 day trip.

    I'm looking to take my ebike down south and hit Gooseberry Mesa, then still have time and energy to hit another full length trail the same day.

    The more complaints I hear about ebikes, the more I laugh. With Specialized, Trek, Cannondale and other major mountain bike brands jumping into the ebike game, the "purists" are so conflicted. Then the ranger at Corner Canyon patrols on an ebike.

    To be accused of cheating in an imaginary contest, it only motivates me to record other rides on Strava.

    According to Contender Bicycle the forest service bought three of them to patrol trails in this area. Park City ski resort who had them band bought 40 for the rental Fleet for this coming year. Could be b******* could be true.

    When you're in Saint George and you have an e-bike and a KTM 300 to ride and you spend more time riding the e-bike that should tell you something. I own and have a owned a lot of toys in my life and it is right up there at the top of the list. Just damn fun.

    Yeah when you see photos from guys up on Ben Lomond with dirt bikes and people think that would be fun, and then they see an ebike up there and the very same people start bitching, like it's cheating, but the motorcycle was ok, it's nice to know who I can ignore in the future.

    I'm waiting for the day where I get scolded on Mueller Park trail for riding an ebike, from some idiot that doesn't realize it's a moto friendly trail. I'll have it all on camera for the good folks of bogley.

    My brother is a big time Strava nerd and has a couple KOM's, so last year I took my dirt bike all over the trails by the Bountiful B while running Strava. Grabbed me a fistful of KOM's and got a message from some dipshit calling me "unethical, and everything wrong with America". He did not appreciate my joke. Little did he know that his message made me 10 times happier than just sending the screenshot to my bro.

    That being said, ebikes are not mountain bikes and shouldn't just be automatically allowed on every trail that mtn bikes are allowed. They are a completely separate user group and should be allowed or not allowed on a case by case basis.

    This would be pretty fun railing in corner canyon though: https://www.stealthelectricbikes.com/

    Just FYI, Ebikes are fully allowed in Corner Canyon. The ranger guy rides around on one, handing out cards to everybody informing them that ebikes are completely fine there.

    I noticed ďE-BikeĒ under sport in Strava, along with a bunch of other things. So you can select it and put your ride under that category. Not sure how long itís been in there. I guess itís on the honor system.
