An electric-assisted bicycle (e-bike) is a bicycle with two or three wheels, a saddle, fully operative pedals for human propulsion, and an electric motor. The motor must have a power output of no more than 750 watts and the e-bike must meet the requirements of one of the three following classifications:
The Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) are directed to undergo a public process to collect information related to electric-assisted bicycle (e-bike) use on natural surface trails and roads that are limited to non-motorized use to determine where e-bike operation may occur and which classes of e-bikes are acceptable on the roads and trails under the agencies' management.
The public process must include, at a minimum, input from a list of interested parties and user groups. The WDFW and the DNR must report their findings to the Legislature by January 1, 2022.
