Jeffco Open Space will be allowing Class 1 e-bikes on its paved trails, which are only located in three parks — Crown Hill, Van Bibber and Clear Creek Trail. For now, the agency is prohibiting use of Class 2 e-bikes in these areas.

During an Aug. 8 Jeffco staff meeting with the county commissioners, JCOS Director Tom Hoby and Visitor Services Manager Mary Ann Bonnell said that the decision came after House Bill 1151 went into effect on Aug. 9. The bill’s intent was to clarify e-bikes’ role in traffic, but JCOS found that the bill also would impact its paved trails.

The bill allows Class 1 and Class 2 e-bikes to operate on paved trails, but Hoby and Bonnell said they intended to use Open Space’s posted notice regulation to allow only Class 1 e-bikes at this time. The agency would like more time to decide whether to allow Class 2 on paved trails, they said.

Hopefully they drop the prohibition on e-bikes. You don't have to regulate everything!

I doubt it will be any worse than the regular bikes zooming by quietly on the paved trails now. At least you can hear the electric whine of the motor.
