Where to Practice Riding an E-Bike
There’s a lot of confusion about e-bikes. We decided to do a three-part series to clear things up.
Riding an e-bike is an incredible experience. That joy you feel when riding your traditional bike increases exponentially when on an e-bike! You’ll never want to stop riding once you get on it.
So where can you experience this unbridled joy? There are several options where you can test ride an e-bike. Like any bike, you should take time to test ride a few bikes to find one that fits your needs, your budget, and feels great when you ride it.
Check out one of these local bike shops and test out why people love riding e-bikes.

Once you have taken one for a test ride, you now have to figure out where you can ride it. It would seem like you could ride it anywhere a traditional bike can ride. But depending upon your jurisdiction this may not be true. Take a look at this chart from the Trails Coalition to understand where you can ride your e-bike.
Armed with this new information from our series, you are now ready to test out an e-bike and go for one of the best bike rides ever!
