With e-mountain bikes slowly taking root in the USA (and IMBA being a little more receptive to them), the real hot button issue is whether or not your trails allow them, or if you’re risking damaging trail access for everyone by riding your motor-assist MTB there. Now there’s an easy way to tell if your home trails or that destination dirt is friendly to eMTB with an interactive map from People For Bikes.
The top image shows the dropdown listing by state, and this screen grab directly above shows the other search options – Trails, Rides and US Forest Service Motorized Trails. Click on any result, or just click on a dot on the map, and you’ll get additional details with a link to more info on the trail.
Go ahead, check it out! (if this embedded map isn’t working, hit the link at bottom). People For Bikes is also asking for your input. Know a good eMTB-friendly trail? You can submit it for addition to the map, and find additional e-mountain bike resources here.
