Can we live with electric mountain bikes on trails? – Brospar Daily News

When I first saw an e-bike, better known as an e-bike, I was struggling up a hill. Suddenly, a silver-haired man in an ordinary city uniform whistled by. I felt a pang of jealousy when he left me in the dust.

That was probably five years ago, and since then e-bike use has skyrocketed. In 2020, U.S. e-bike sales in June alone totaled around $90 million, a 190% increase from the previous June.

It’s hard to remember, but the mainstream mountain bike didn’t hit the market until the 1980s, and conflict quickly arose as early adopters rode trails previously only used by hikers and riders.

People claim that bicycles increase erosion. They are afraid of hitting and spooking the horses. They speculated that the ATV would scare wild animals. Today, the same argument is used against electric mountain bikes.
