Petition for Class 2 E-Bikes to Have Access to Orange County Bike Paths, Trail & Parks
This Petition is prepared on behalf of Class II EBike owners that cannot attend the April Board of Supervisor’s meeting to voice their concern for having continued access to Orange County bike paths and trails. During this time of creating new rules and regulations for our safety, we provide you with a brief list of reasons why our Class II EBikes are beneficial to us and our Community. The majority of EBike owners are baby boomers and use the EBikes to go longer distances, go up hills, use for physical and mental therapy, as well as social gatherings. Many of us go on group rides on the weekends to restaurants, parks, beaches, etc. This cuts down on traffic, parking issues, pollution, costs and all the stresses of driving a car. If it wasn’t for the EBike, there are a portion of people who would never get outside and enjoy life the way they do now. The bikes only go 20 miles an hour maximum and everyone rides with extreme caution and safety. We, the undersigned, Petition continued access for Class II EBikes to the Orange County bike paths and trails which provides us safety and enjoyment of our beautiful Community.
If you want to join in the movement to have continued access to these bike paths, we have made it easy for you to assist in the process. You can:
1) Sign the Petition
2) Write a letter regarding the importance of your Pedego. You can use the template below.
3) Appear at the Board of Supervisor's Meeting to give a 3-minute statement
The date has not yet been set for the meeting so we will keep you posted as soon as we get that information.
To the Orange County Board of Supervisors:
I ride my Class II EBike and do use the OC river trails and bike paths. My EBike allows me the opportunity to ride my bike longer distances due to my current health issues being ____________________. AND/OR -My EBike allows me to save money on gas, and time normally spent in traffic if I had to drive my car. I would like to request you give us continued access to these paths for safety and the opportunity to continue to be active in our own community.
