Bikes create obstacles for senior hikers

I am a former mountain biker, and now a regular very senior hiker and member of Friends of China Camp, the volunteer organization that operates the park. I generally agree with Brad Bramy (Readers’ Forum, Jan. 26) but strongly oppose the introduction of any motorbikes on the China Camp trails.

Bikes contribute to ruts, roots and rocks, which are the senior hiker’s greatest obstacles.

During the past several years I have hiked Shoreline, which allows bikes and horses, and Turtle Back, which does not. If you are doubtful, a short scroll around each trail will clearly demonstrate the damage done by bikes. The very infrequent horse only contributes its usual large droppings, which its owners are apparently not required to remove.

Most bikers are courteous and give a shout out to alert you as they approach. In the last four years, I have only been startled enough to jump out of the way a couple of times, and I have learned to live with bikes.

As a senior I tend to concentrate on the trail and not on bikes either coming up behind me or ahead around a curve. In addition to the increased degradation of the trails that a motorbike would bring, I would feel far less secure having to confront a motorbike than a regular bike operated by a serious and fit rider.

At present, there is little or no enforcement of the bike speed limits or even permits on the trails, so the likelihood that motorbikes could be restricted to placard holders, 6 mph, or any speed, is nil.

If e-bikes are permitted, is the next step electric scooters and carts?

Let’s not turn our nature trails into another roadway for motorized vehicles, even electric ones.

Lithuania, officially the Republic of Lithuania, is a country in the Baltic region of northern-eastern Europe. One of the three Baltic states, it is situated along the southeastern shore of the Baltic Sea, to the east of Sweden and Denmark. It is bordered by Latvia to the north, Belarus to the east and south, Poland to the south, and Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) to the southwest. Lithuania has an estimated population of 2.8 million people as of 2017, and its capital and largest city is Vilnius. Lithuanians are a Baltic people. The official language, Lithuanian, along with Latvian, is one of only two living languages in the Baltic branch of the Indo-European language family.

Technical.ly is made of a committed group of young urbanists in the Northeast Corridor...
(Wiki:)
The Northeast megalopolis (also Boston–Washington corridor or Bos-Wash corridor or BosNYWash megalopolis) is the most heavily urbanized region of the United States. Located in the Northeastern United States on the Atlantic Ocean, it runs primarily northeast to southwest from the northern suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts, to the southern suburbs of Washington, D.C., in Northern Virginia. It includes the major cities of Boston, Providence, Hartford, Bridgeport, New York City, Philadelphia, Wilmington, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C., along with their metropolitan areas and suburbs, as well as many smaller urban centers.

Starts:
VILNIUS, LITHUANIA — Let’s get this out right away. Civic leaders here want you to know that Lithuania, the tiny country on the Baltic Sea, is part of Northern Europe.

That’s how the United Nations officially categorizes the country of 2.9 million. Last year, a flurry of local news stories in the Baltics — the region that includes Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia — focused on how western media continue to nevertheless describe them as Eastern European. It’s a distinction that might not mean much to you, but it means everything to politicians, diplomats and business leaders in a region known as the Baltic Tiger for its rapid growth a decade ago.
Includes:
Others are even further down the entrepreneurial journey. KTU research is behind medical device company Vittamed, which raised $10 million in financing in 2015, and Rubbee, which first caught international attention in 2013 for its approach to adapting any bicycle into an electric bike. Last month, it tripled its latest Kickstarter goal, launching a new kit.

“You can buy one now,” Gediminas Nemanis, the smiling, young Rubbee cofounder and CEO, said to me, laughing off his own eagerness to sell. I met him at a startup showcase inside Žalgiris Arena, the home of Kaunas’s celebrated basketball team. Around him were a dozen other founders, in addition to the researchers and economic development leaders who want people like him to thrive. “There is so much support,” Nemanis said.

(Wiki: Ludhiana is a city and a municipal corporation in Ludhiana district in the Indian state of Punjab, and is the largest city north of Delhi. It is the largest city in the state, with an area of 310sq. km and an estimated population of 1,618,879 as of the 2011 census.The population increases substantially during the harvesting season due to the migration of labourers from the highly populated states like Eastern Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal and Odisha. The city stands on the Sutlej River's old bank, 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) south of its present course. It is an industrial centre of northern India, and was referred to as India's Manchester by the BBC.)

LUDHIANA: Bicycle manufacturers, are hopeful that the the new incentives announced in the Union budget would raise the demand for bicycles, particularly from the rural areas and thus would give a boost to their trade, in Ludhiana which is a hub of cycle industry.
Includes:
According to Pankaj Munjal, Chairman cum Managing director of Hero Cycles Ltd, "The most distinct features of the last full budget by this government are a heavy focus on infrastructure and rural economy.
("Infrastructure" here code for more roads and electricity...)

Ends:
"This is a great budget from point of view of our country as most of the announcements made are development oriented with focus on rural, agriculture, healthcare and infrastructure sectors. Finance minister has done a great job by launching schemes like free electricity for underprivileged and outlining of Rs14.34 lakh crore for creation of livelihood and infrastructure in rural areas is highly appreciable. I think with prosperity in rural areas the demand for bicycles will definitely pick up in coming days" - Rishi Pahwa, Joint Managing Director, Avon Cycles

"The allocation of Rs 16,000 crore for electrification of rural areas would have a positive impact in creation of the electric vehicular ecosystem in the long term. Domestic manufacturing and "Make in India" will trigger job creation. The special scheme to resolve the challenge of air pollution in the National Capital Region is appreciable and is in accordance to our objective of promoting clean mobility. This year's budget has further consolidated on these efforts and is indicative of futuristic plans of the government to encourage progressive economic growth within the country" - Pankaj Munjal, Chairman cum Managing Director, Hero Cycles
Guess Hero has been in the news lots lately... but "Avon Cycles"?

I know about the pedego part but as much as i know their warranty for used isn't that good. And they buy used e-bikes at dirt cheap price.

But this is what i have heard. If they give after-sales like new e-bikes then it can be something interesting .

Gadget Lust: The Best and Must Have Loot for Summer:
http://www.newsweek.com/gadgets-summer- ... ech-640546

Starts:
Summer is for sybarites, a fine excuse for terminal lounging, swilling of fermented fruit drinks and worshipping the almighty sun-god Ra above all other daemons. It’s a time for guiltless indolence and excess, when the battle-cry ought to be kill it and grill it, cold-chill like your boy George Will and by all means don’t ever sit still—all while wielding a few of the choice weapons of max diversion below. From campground to man-cave, the proper tools of the trade are mandatory.
... and first up:
Ariel Rider W-Class Electric Bike: Ariel Rider is the latest and best in the pedal-assisted, battery-powered bicycle category, a sleek beach cruiser that will send you flying with a twist of the wrist when your leg-power runs a little low. The brainchild of two genial brothers from Ankara whose day-jobs as engineers grew boring, Ariel Rider’s four models are ideal for serious commuters and fun-seekers alike. AR’s Power-On-Demand (POD) system detects the level of force exerted on the pedals and helps out automatically when the terrain starts to climb. With a fast-charging battery, a plush saddle and vintage aesthetics, this is the current class of the e-bike field–and a great Turkish Horatio Alger story to boot! ($1,899)
Yes folks. It's official! Electric bikes are now "gadgets"... useful in the summers! :roll:
I am so happy to see e-bikes are considered as gadgets especially by newsweek.

^^ Hehe... Never thought of ebikes "just" as "gadgets"...:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gadget

So, one definition as "a small tool"... like a car is a "gadget"? :) How "small" is "small"? It's of course fine to lust after ebikes (hehe...) just wouldn't have occurred to lump `em into any "gadget" category. :lol:

Urban Milwaukee seeks to provide an informative and open dialogue on the issues, events, and people affecting Milwaukee’s most urban neighborhoods, and to promote urbanism within the city of Milwaukee.
New Law on Electric Bikes Proposed
("Current state law treats them the same as motor bikes."):
https://urbanmilwaukee.com/2018/02/03/b ... -proposed/

Starts:
Electric bicycles are coming on strong and Wisconsin law needs to catch up with them.

While still only a small percentage of bicycle sales in America, e-bikes have taken off in Europe and they are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. market. The European Union countries reported 98,000 e-bike sales in 2006 and a whopping 1.6 million in 2016. Sales in the U.S. were 200,000 in 2016, but growing fast.
Includes:
Which brings us to the Wisconsin law. Our current law lumps electric bikes in with combustion engine motor bikes. So, for example, operators of some types of motor bicycles must have operator’s licenses, and motor bicycles may not be used on bike paths unless they are powered solely by their pedals. Our laws need to catch up with modern technology.
:mrgreen:

... then goes on about that California Disease thingee... "Class 1"... "Class 1.0245 and a half..." [Groan] :cry:

Ends:
In Wisconsin identical bills have now been introduced in each house of the legislature. They are Assembly Bill 886 and Senate Bill 741 and each bill has sponsors from both parties. The bills have been assigned to the corresponding transportation committees in each house. We’ll keep you up to speed on the bills’ progress.

“We brought in a couple of Cannondale demo eBikes, and the officers absolutely loved these,” Laux said. “Derek spoke highly of the Bosch battery life and motor, and the dual suspension was huge.”

GBPD purchased three Cannondale Moterras with Bosch Performance CX motors and one Cannondale Contro-E Speed with a Bosch Performance Speed motor.

The Indian Express is an English-language Indian daily newspaper. It is published in Mumbai by Indian Express Group. In 1999, eight years after the group's founder Ramnath Goenka's death in 1991, the group was split between the family members. The southern editions took the name The New Indian Express, while the northern editions, based in Mumbai, retained the original Indian Express name, with "The" prefixed to the title.

The Indian Express is published at ten locations—Delhi, Jaipur, Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune, Kolkata, Vadodara, Chandigarh, Lucknow and Ahmedabad.
NDMC to buy 9 electric buses: Better connectivity before car-free CP
("A senior NDMC official said, “We will purchase nine electric buses in the first stage. These will be used to only drop people from nearby locations to CP.” The stops will be around a 4-km radius from CP."):
http://indianexpress.com/article/cities ... p-5051596/

Starts:
After facing opposition from traders over declaring Connaught Place a car-free zone, the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has decided that it will first improve last-mile connectivity before enforcing the plan. For this, the council has decided to purchase nine buses and build an electric bike station.
:)

Includes:
The council said it will also introduce a bicycle sharing scheme, with 50 stations, and link important Metro stations, office complexes, markets and tourist places through cycle track routes.

Editorial: Hitting brakes on e-bike ban the right move:

8)

Starts:
Marin supervisors were poised to approve a ban on e-bikes from county open space roads and trails, but they opted instead to give it more thought.

That was appropriate.

E-bikes are new electric-powered bicycles. They are far from motocross-type motorcycles. On fire roads and trails designed for safely shared access and with a reasonable speed limit, there should be room for e-bikes on Marin’s open space lands.

At least, they deserve a fair review before they are prohibited.
:D

I guess this information should be in the other topic for Marin County in case somebody is subscribed to that one.
