Some people want to see and do more by bike, but have a hard time pedaling long distances, up hills or over rough terrains. Others would use a bike to commute to work more, but don’t want to get sweaty and a few are concerned about the time element. That’s where electric bikes offer the best of all worlds – experience the great outdoors without the strenuous workout, cover long distances in a breeze, and keep up with fellow bikers.

The race series will be held on two unique courses specifically designed for eMTB racers.

eMountain Bike Trail Riding Etiquette Tips

Riding an eBike is healthy and fun off road, but here are a few tips to keep in mind:

Wear a helmet: As with any bike, wearing a helmet enhances rider safety.

Be prepared: Think about what you will need to keep supplied, especially if you are traveling long distances, or over rough terrain. Have plenty of water and some healthy snacks. Make sure your phone is fully charged, and have a trail map available. Let someone know where you’re going, and when you expect to return, especially if biking alone.

Ride with a bell: Even with electric bicycles, some riders might not be able to hear you riding on a trail. Come in our stores and pick up a bell or most trails have a bell box you can pick one up and attach to your bike just be sure to return it.

Legalities: eBikes are accepted on most mountain trails as long as they are a Class 1 ebike which is a pedal assisted non throttle 20 mph maximum speed bike. For more in formation on the legalities please visit our regulation page.
