BPSA Drives E-Bike Progress

We’ve been leading the charge to pass favorable e-bike laws, gain more access for e-bikes, and inform retailers and consumers for three years. Here are our latest successes:

• Clarifying e-bike laws: So that it’s easy for riders, retailers, and lawmakers to know where e-bikes are allowed, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Tennessee, and Utah have passed laws that classify e-bikes like bicycles. Click for state by state e-bike guides.

• 2018 e-bike campaigns: We have identified 13 new states where we believe we have the relationships and resources needed to advance e-bike friendly bills: AL, AK, AZ, CT, FL, HI, ID, ME, MA, MO, OR, PA and WY.

• Places to ride eMTBs: A great result of our BPSA/PeopleForBikes partnership is an interactive eMTB map with 8,679 miles of routes cataloged. Our eMTB Adventures highlight great rides in places like Crested Butte, Gunnison, Hood River, or Sun Valley.

• Fighting for better e-bike access: The new eMTB Playbook helps locals advocate for better eMTB access. Use it to understand how e-bike policy works and for all the right talking points.
