Boulder County Open House: e-Bikes on Open Space

Thursday, October 3, 2019

Boulder County Parks & Open Space staff will hold a series of open house meetings and public hearings to present findings, staff recommendations, and collect public feedback regarding the use of e-bikes on county-managed open space properties.

A pilot period to allow e-bikes on certain Boulder County managed regional and open space trails in the plains is in effect. E-bikes are prohibited on all other county open space trails.

Pilot Study Research Results & E-bike Recommendations

Boulder County Parks & Open Space staff will hold a series of open house meetings and public hearings to present findings, staff recommendations, and collect public feedback regarding the use of e-bikes on county-managed open space properties.

After a year of public outreach about e-bikes in 2018, the Boulder County Commissioners directed staff to allow e-bikes on certain trails on a pilot basis in 2019. During the course of the year, staff has conducted research including surveys of trail users, a county-wide telephone survey, a bicycle speed observation study, and a literature review of recreation conflict and e-bike research and policies in other jurisdictions.
