    do you feel the same way about ebike users wanting to open up wilderness areas to ebikes? You know, the areas where deer carts aren’t even allowed?

    Talk to Fish and game idiots, they never anticipated electric driven bikes when when the restriction was made. They will need to further define it. They didn't want motorcycles being driven, and the noise that comes with them for obvious reasons. There's no difference between a guy riding a bike, and an ebike...except they cost more, and it's another expense. BTW...I don't have one.

    Name calling really hurts :dv

    They may not have anticipated an electric bike but if it’s driven by an electric “motor” then , in my idiotic thinking, would consider it motorized & in violation of the rule. I’m willing to bet this will be clarified in the regs and refuge rules for next year.

    That said, I believe that the salt slough check station has a sign stating no E Bikes. I’m not sure if that’s a specific rule to those areas but it’s obvious that they’ve either encountered this or discussed it and drew a line in the sand. Who knows, maybe it’ll go the other way and they’ll allow them. Then we can bitch about there not being charging stations...

    Always pedal when you're riding a e-bike at a refuge. Dead give away if you are doing 25 on a soft levy and not cranking on the pedals

    electric motors are motors.
    internal combustion engines fall under motors as well.

    Not sure if you were calling me an idiot or the fish in game people idiots but see above and report back your thoughts please.

    AJCsurf, you beat me, and about 100 other people to the punch... I would have assumed the definition was "self-evident?"
