One of the many excellent comment letters objecting to Tahoe National Forest's attempt to add electric motorized bikes to non-motorized trails through the Pines to Mines Trail Project EA was submitted by Back Country Horsemen of America (BCHA) and Back Country Horsemen of California (BCHC). It specifies the policies and laws that are being violated by including motorized E-bikes in the Pines to Mines Trail EA.
Gold Country Trails Council, BCHC, BCHA, Sierra Foothills Audubon Society, Sierra Club Mother Lode, Loomis Basin Horsemen, Emigrant Trail Conservancy, and Mother Lode Trails have submitted comments, and all agree that E-bikes do not belong on non-motorized trails. Period. There are thousands of miles of motorized trails for them on public lands in California. CLICK ON THIS PICTURE to find out why through this excellent letter.
