Electric Bikes or E bikes are bikes that are partially or completely powered through employing a motor that propels the bike. As such, E bikes are considered by the government ministry overseeing our sanctioned trails, as motorized. These trails are designated for non-motorized use. Therefore, E bikes are not permitted on trails sanctioned by the GCC in the CBT or Moonrakers network.
Please note this is not a policy developed by the Golden Cycling Club and does not reflect any of our personal opinion related to the use of E bikes. If you are unhappy with this policy the sounding board for your opinion would be the Ministry of Forestry Land and Natural Resources who you can reach through Front Counter BC.
Should you notice motorized use of any of these trails, you can make a report through the province’s RAPP line – 1-877-952-7277.
