The city of Colorado Springs has set a new policy regarding e-bikes, which are partially or fully powered by motors.

The policy states that Class 1 e-bikes will be allowed on urban trails but not multi-use trails. The allowed bikes, also known as pedal-assist bikes, require pedaling and don’t go more than 20 miles per hour.

Other models, which may be activated through a grip-twist throttle, button or trigger, will not be allowed on any trails.

Urban trails include the Pikes Peak Greenway and Rock Island Trail. Multi-use trails, where all e-bikes are banned, generally have a soft surface and are often located in open spaces and regional parks. The city has a list of trails where Class 1 e-bikes are allowed at coloradosprings.gov/ebike.
