    Someone should challenge Captain Kirk to ride Fast Friendly Guy's Strava art of the USS Enterprise.

The proposed law would permit localities to prohibit Class 1 and 2 ebikes from bike paths, unclear how/if that changes anything on bike paths already signposted 'no motorized vehicles'.
    Looks like the MD bill was passed and signed into law: http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/webmga/fr...ect3&ys=2019rs

    Sounds like it'll be part of the package sent to the Board related to dockless. I believe staff is aiming to get the package to the Board in October for a November vote.

    Fame at last! After reading the first part of the tweet my wife giggled as my rig was photographed while I was taking our 3 year old daughter to dance class, I shall take this as confirmation I look utterly exhausted and ancient. It's all good because I agree with the sentiment, ebikes make it possible for me to run errands, go places, tow a trailer, ride a bike with my family, while running on caffeine and interrupted sleep.

    Evidence from a variety of research studies indicates that e-bicycling, more so than conventional bicycling, substitutes for car travel.

    The WashCycle blog is reporting among recent legislation proposed by DC Council member Mary Cheh is a revision to the 2016 Motor Vehicle Collision Recovery Act (MVCRA) to extend its legal protections to riders of ebikes and escooters involved in collisions with motor vehicles in the District of Columbia. The law applied a 51% "comparative negligence" standard in civil cases enabling cyclists and pedestrians to pursue compensation for 100% of medical expenses and property damage if they are no more than 50% at fault in causing a crash with a motor vehicle. As originally written the MVCRA protected pedestrians, pedal cyclists, and "non-motorized" public road users...plus riders of segways(?) The proposed revision, titled "Vulnerable User Collision Recovery Amendment Act Of 2019", will extend the protections to riders of ebikes and escooters. In the DC region Virginia and Maryland still maintain the contributory negligence standard, Source: https://www.mwl-law.com/wp-content/u...TEMS-CHART.pdf
