California Could Open Bike Paths to E-Bikes

 The California state legislature is currently considering a bill that would open trails, paths, and bike lanes to e-bikes

Bike lanes and paths are generally reserved exclusively for nonmotorized use, but the rising popularity of electric bikes in the United States has led local and state governments to consider allowing bikes with electric motors on bike paths.

Category 1: Pedal-assisted electric bike with a top assisted speed of 20 mph
Category 2: Pedal-assisted or propelled by a throttle (unassisted) with a top motor-driven speed of 20 mph
Category 3: Pedal-assisted electric bike with a top assisted speed of 28 mph

Category 1 and 2 ebikes would be permitted.
