Yes, bikes are banned from riding that road. So you need to know the right people and pay a fair share of money to get it blocked off for a race event. There are plenty of roads like that out here. There aren't any bike lanes where you can safely plod along at a different speed than drivers on the hills, even in town there aren't really any bike lanes. This whole region of Colorado basically just sucks.
I do not have any $ lying around to get the highway open and don't know the magic words. Even then, not enough ES-ers will make it for it to be financially reasonable to do at all.
I'm sorry your race moved away from you, dogman It sounds like we are in the same boat.
MrBill and Josh.. you have a different idea of what an eBike should be than i and many others on the forums do. It suits your mid drive setups, but anyone with a hub motor ( like me ) will automatically lose if limited to 750w.
A few people have thought of the idea of having multiple classes of ebike. Would that not make more sense?
