Electric bikes (e-bikes) have become increasingly popular in recent years as an alternative form of transportation and a new recreation activity. Recognizing this as an emerging use of Crown land, Recreation Sites and Trails BC has created a policy to clarify e-bike use on established recreation trails. The policy acknowledges e-biking as an allowable activity on Crown land where permitted, and supports Recreation Sites and Trails BC to work with Partnership Agreement holders, communities and other stakeholders to fairly and consistently evaluate e-bike activity relative to current trail uses and use restrictions. The policy only applies to established trails managed by Recreation Sites and Trails BC and does not apply to trails managed by BC Parks or vacant provincial public land, local government or trails on private land.
