DCNR unveiled its e-bike Policy in August 2022. E-bikes have been growing increasingly popular over the past several years, worldwide and here in the United States, as technology and functionality improves and prices decrease. E-bikes may offer people opportunities to expand their outdoor recreational access and even serve as a primary mode of transportation for those interested in a healthier, more environmentally-friendly lifestyle. This session will provide an overview of DCNR’s draft e-bike policy, background on the technology and industry, and what the new policy means for DCNR lands and trails.
