JCPRD is conducting a 6-month pilot project to evaluate the use of E-bikes on our paved trails.
The pilot program will allow the use of Class 1 and Class 3 E-Bikes on JCPRD's shared-use paved trails from July 15, 2019 through January 15, 2020.
Class 1 and Class 3 e-bikes are defined as low-speed bicycles with fully operable pedals and an electric motor of less than 750 watts (one horsepower) . The top speed that can be generated by the motor is 20 miles per hour for Class 1, and 28 miles per hour for Class 3. E-bikes must be pedaled to activate the motor.
