    Some of those anti ebike comments are gold.

    BOOM
    Ebikes classified as non motorized. Thanks Trump! #winning

    "Itís part of a new Trump administration order ó hotly opposed by many outdoors groups ó that will allow e-bikes on every federal trail where a regular bike can go."

    "Interior Secretary David Bernhardt signed the order without fanfare Thursday, classifying e-bikes as non-motorized bikes."

    Just reading comments on another site. IT was noted that this is from the Dept of the Interior which is why it lists BLM, Fish and Wildlife, National Parks and other specific agency managed land. Good for many areas - like Moab.

    The National Forest Service is under the Department of Agriculture which is not included in this administrative order. Wasatch, Cache, Uintah, etc... forests are not inclluded... which is pretty much every where around here that we want to be riding.

    Maybe they will follow suit? Maybe they are waiting to see how this works out before including the NFS land? Groups are already lining up to sue the government, and theywill find some liberal judge to block this just because of the administration it was implemented under. Had this happened under Obama we'd now have Bernie and Pocahantas wanting to give a free eMTB to every college grad with their tuition forgiveness.

    Lol

    "If you're hiking on a trail in Utah and you're rounding a bend and something's coming at you at 20 mph, that really changes the experience," said Kristen Brengel, a vice president of the National Parks Conservation Association, a non-profit that advocates for the national park system.

    "It's pretty jarring" to those who take to public lands to escape city noise and stress for nature, Brengel said. "You're adding significant speed and a throttle to those trails."

    I'm waiting for the tandem ebike. Then when your wife or kid fakes the pedaling, it's ok.

    So you beat out another fat guy on an ebike for a KOM? Cool!

    I think just about every KOM in Corner Canyon is now owned by an ebike, you should come down and chase some of those records.

    "In more than 300 miles of riding a wide range of trails on Class 1 e-bikes in different conditions, we discovered that although an e-bike has a motor attached, it is still human-powered and requires physical effort, as it will not move without pedaling input. But more importantly, we discovered this new form of recreation is just as low impact as a traditional mountain bike, and has the ability to create many more advocates for trails and the protection of public lands."

    "
    The Tahoe National Forest recently opened more than 200 miles of non-motorized trail to Class 1 e-bike use including favorites like Hole in the Ground, Emigrant, Sawtooth, Bullards Bar and North Yuba Trail in Downieville. "

    Like Trump says, I'm gonna get #tiredofwinning

    Back in the day, before electronic ignition, also had to kick start it. How is that different from an ebike?
