Ebike Riders Required To Follow Guidelines On Pine Creek Rail Trail

by Johanna Vogt - May 12, 2022

Electric bicycles are a great way to exercise; however, there are some guidelines for the Pine Creek Rail Trail to ensure everyone’s safety. Electric bikes are mainly categorized into three classes. Only class I electric bikes are allowed on the Rail Trail.

Class I ebikes are peddle-assisted without a throttle. Beyond this, class II and class III bikes become too heavy, fast and dangerous for the trail because of their throttles and high speeds.

The Pine Creek Rail Trail is not designed for high speeds as many families and older bikers are usually riding. The Rail Trail provides an excellent, low-impact and scenic outlet for exercise.

Curt Schramm from CS Sports, Inc. reminds bikers to keep respectful etiquette while on the trail – making sure people are aware of passing, stopping at stop signs, and being courteous. For those wanting to purchase an ebike, Schramm recommends brand-name bicycles as they provide a whole team of support with maintenance and repairs.

Those who would like more information about the Pine Creek Rail Trail and its guidelines can contact the Tioga State Forest District office or the Tiadaghton State Forest office.
