E-bikes are surging in popularity




A proposal to allow certain electronic bikes access to nearly 150 miles of trails in the Tahoe-area basin is a step in the right direction but still has a long way to go, according to area riders.To get more news about volt electric bike, you can visit magicyclebike.com official website.

The U.S. Forest Service’s Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit allows certain classes of e-bikes on 25 of its 385 miles of trails. Under the management unit’s proposed plan, an additional 120 miles of new and existing trails would open to e-bikes, bringing the total number of e-bike accessible miles to 145, not counting dirt roads.To get more news about bluetooth bike speaker, you can visit magicyclebike.com official website.
“This project is our effort at being proactive and managing e-bikes,” according to Jacob Quinn, engineering technician for the LTMBU. “We’re not trying to only open difficult and longer trails, but a variety.”But “the general sentiment with e-bikes is pretty polarized,” according to Amanda Wentz, a board member with the Biggest Little Trail Stewardship, a nonprofit group that builds and maintains trails throughout the Reno area. “From a management perspective, it makes sense why they are so tricky – it’s a grey area.To get more news about ebike for sale, you can visit magicyclebike.com official website.”

The Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit spans Alpine, El Dorado and Placer counties in California, plus Douglas and Washoe counties and Carson City in Nevada.

Nevada has not adopted a tiered e-bike classification system, but California has, depending on the speed the bike can travel and how much assistance riders must provide the vehicle.For comparison, Google Maps uses an average speed of 10 mph for bicycle directions and the average person typically cycles at about 13 mph, according to the Rails to Trails Conservancy, a nonprofit group that converts old railroad grades to multi-user trails. The average speed of a Tour de France bicycle racer is 25 mph.

Wentz, who has only ridden an e-bike for a few weeks, said she hears many misconceptions about them, such as the bikes chewing up trails.There’s just not enough power with an e-bike to actually do that,” she said. “I think there’s misconceptions about the amount of damage they can do.”

According to the Rails to Trails Conservancy, “User conflicts caused by speed are more about behavior than technology. Both traditional cyclists – especially fit cyclists or racers – and e-bike users have the potential to cause speed-related user conflicts.”For comparison, Google Maps uses an average speed of 10 mph for bicycle directions and the average person typically cycles at about 13 mph, according to the Rails to Trails Conservancy, a nonprofit group that converts old railroad grades to multi-user trails.

It’s just a philosophical problem that needs to be resolved,” said Randy Collins, owner of College Cyclery in Reno.

Wentz has also observed traditional riders exhibit jealousy toward e-bike riders who are ascending hills faster without working as hard and possessiveness over area trails.Under the proposed plan, new and enhanced trailheads including Elks Point and Pine Drop Trailhead in the Kings Beach area will be open to e-bikes, as would the Incline Flume, the Angora Ridge trail system and a new trail to be built in the Emerald Bay area.

No trails that access the Desolation Wilderness will be open to e-bikes, nor will the Tahoe Rim Trail.

South Lake Tahoe’s Pope Baldwin Bike Path, the highest-use trail in the Tahoe Basin, will also remain closed to e-bikes.

“On a summer weekend, there will be thousands of users on it every day. You’ll see hikers, runners, road bikers, people riding beach cruisers, people pushing strollers, everybody uses that trail in the summer. Our intent was to not introduce another use to a trail that is already at capacity,” Quinn said.
