    Pretty sure it's crystal clear from context that I meant the former. So much so, that at this point I wonder whether you're trolling.

    But I will assume, for now, that you are here for a real...

    Not on a road.

    When bikes are transportation, they need to have the ability to go on road (because trails don't go everywhere) and on trail (because there are enough routes where the only safe...

    1. I completely agree we can and should grow non-ebike usage. But I'd put money on the real reason people don't bike more (in Arlington, at least) is because they "can't". The numbers from Europe...

    1. I see your point, but your "seems" is not correct. Not every ebike has a lot of power. Depending on the weight of the bike and the power of the motor, the rider's power may make a significant...

    The article failed to address the aspect of "women would do this too, but are expected to keep house and take care of the children".

    But note there are not *that* many trainings, and trainings are a multi-day affair. WABA is the only host in the DC area this year. So unless you're willing to travel on a very specific schedule, a...

    It's a problem is that some people ride bikes (e- and not) on MUPs at speeds that are unsafe (and there are places where 12mph is unsafe, others where 20mph is safe).

    The reason the anti-ebike...

    Volume is a fair concern, but it ignores that people need to get around. Banning ebikes would essentially be saying "all you less-fit folks, you stay in cars/on transit; we want trails to remain for...

    Thanks. I'd add that the 50 Trail should continue West as well (right now it stops at the loop).

    Also, that DPR should develop expertise in its Department and commit to the trails being an...

    If you think buying something of value automatically makes one entitled, you misunderstand the meaning of the word. Also, I have some pretty nice e-systems, and none of them are worth more than $1k....

    It depends on the grade. There are parts of the Custis where you can easily hit 30mph without pedaling. Besides, it's entirely likely that the segment of the population that right now doesn't ride a...

    This has happened to me a number of times with people on non ebikes doing the speeding and slowing (with me on an ebike and on a non ebike).

    There are a wide variety of ebikes. Plenty can't go 20mph at all, let alone 28mph, on the flats. There's a federal law, and acompanying FTC reg, that gives special status (irrelevant in this area) to...

    Ebikes that have the power but are programmed to meet the FTC regs can do 20mph uphill and on flats.

    I only bring it up because it appears in nearly every post you've made about the issue. If you don't have a personal hangup or your personal hangup is irrelevant, stop bringing it up.
