    I don't know what the actual law or rule may be, but I for one don't have a problem with e-bikes on trails. Heck, I figure I'll probably need one at some point! :(

    I do it, because I figure they need to learn that's what people are supposed to do. But I do it in my best kindergarten-teacher-cum-peter-pan-cum-barney-the-dinosaur-cum-Mr. Rogers voice. ;)

    I wouldn't do it - that stretch terrifies me when I'm driving, I wouldn't go near it on a bike. I'd stick to the back roads. YMMV.
