E – Bikes policy:

Given the Governor’s distinction of electric bikes as “non-motorized vehicles” East Montpelier Trails made a difficult decision last night at our board meeting. Our trails are multi-use, two direction, sometimes steep, twisty, rocky and generally very narrow. We decided that e-bikes would present a safety hazard to people walking, which is the primary use of the trails these days, so we are requesting that e-bicycles not use the trails for the foreseeable future. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause folks. Please feel free to let us know your feelings about this decision. Thank you.
