Here are some of the online resources covered in the video:
People for Bikes eBike homepage with state eBike regulations.
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.
Here is more information on the Haibike XDURO AllMtn 8.0 electric mountain bike used in this video.
