A new source of mountain biker energy.

Yes!  Class 1 e-bikes are allowed on a large portion of CAMBA managed trails.  CAMBA’s own research, along with that of the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) support this conclusion.

E-bikes defined.

“Class 1 e-bikes” are pedal-assist mountain bikes in traditional mountain bike construction with an electric motor that ceases to provide assistance when the bike reaches 20 mph. Class 2 and Class 3 e-bikes are capable of greater speeds and not appropriate for use on natural trails.

Where are e-bikes allowed?

Currently, CAMBA’s Hospital Trails as well as Hayward, Seeley Cable and Ashwabay Clusters all allow Class 1 e-bikes. Trails within the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest do not allow e-bikes so no e-bikes are allowed in the Namakagon Cluster.

E-bikes are here to stay.

Not only have e-bikes been an incredible boon to the mountain biking industry, they also allow many people with physical challenges to enjoy this great sport.  We are in full support of this growth of mountain biking and we ask that all riders on our trails are treated with respect.
