  1. An E-bike is a motorized vehicle. If the trail has posted signs that specifies no motorized vehicles, it is not legal. Furthermore, some try to skirt the law by stating the bike is power assisted. Well, the power assist is generated by an electric motor, thus rendering the e-bike as illegal.

  2. Disagree: If it’s under 20mph, it is a bicycle. If you have it in PAS 0, it is a bicycle without question.
