EBikes (2024)

Rule timeline Start.png


OPRD is beginning the process of a potential re-examination of e-bike regulations on Oregon State Parks and Beaches. Currently, e-bikes are allowed in all OPRD trails over eight feet in width. This year, Oregon adopted a three-class e-bike classification system similar to many other states. E-bikes have a maximum motorized speed of either 20 miles per hour or 28 miles per hour, and provide powered pedaling assistance to allow riders to ride further and longer than conventional bicycles. Only class 2 e-bikes have a throttle that allows propulsion without pedaling. Please see the table below for details.

OPRD's current e-bike rules do not account for these differences between e-bike classes, so now is an ideal time to revisit current regulations and assess whether changes are appropriate. We want to hear from you about how OPRD can better tailor e-bike rules to ensure the best recreation experience for all park users!
