Here are some of the online resources covered in the video:
People for Bikes eBike homepage with state eBike regulations.
People for Bikes Ride and Routes
People for Bikes eMTB ride map.
From People for Bikes “Please remember that on federal, state, county and local trails, eMTB access varies significantly. Generally speaking, any natural surface trail designated for both motorized and non-motorized use is open to eMTBs. eMTBs may not be allowed on trails managed for non-motorized activities. eMTB access on singletrack is different than access to paved and soft surface bike lanes and bike paths. eMTBs are not allowed everywhere traditional mountain bikes are. Always consult with your local land manager for access questions.”
People for Bikes is asking for people to submit electric mountain bike ride routes here.
Google Earth and Google Maps.
The Trailforks smartphone app has the eMTB filter option. Apple app or Google App.

Any jurisdiction that allows bicycles and not class one Ebikes is discrimanating against old folks and people with disabilities..
Would be nice to see this subject discussed more in your reports….
Albert Llata says
Totally agree. These agencies likely are not allowed to discriminate against those with disabilities in a case of pedal assist. That is to make one a criminal for using pedal assist to ride equally with those of normal abilities. That could be a defense in court if you are ticketed and could make a precedent.
David, that describes me. An osteoarthritic knee, age 75 with a 50 year old heart and head! At same time, I always limit my “trail” speed to 12 or less and give all those I come up on a loud bell ring
and a “passing on your left”, friendly message. Most thank me…………
