Know Before You Buy, Know Before You Ride: Only Certain E-Bikes are Allowed on Certain Trails

It can be challenging to understand all the types of electric mountain bikes and where you can ride them. This guide will break down each e-MTB classification, what a typical bike in that category looks like, and where it can most commonly be ridden. That said, access for electric mountain bikes varies trail by trail, and across land management agencies, communities, regions and states. Be sure to check with local officials to make sure your e-bike is allowed before hitting the trails. Download as .jpeg or as .pdf.
