E-bikes ARE allowed on the Greenway, but speeding is not.

Some of you may have read the article by Mark Freeman , brought to my attention by Phil Gagnon and published in the Mail Tribune on 7/2/21, which stated that e-bikes are prohibited on the Greenway.  I checked with John Vial of the Jackson County Roads and Parks Dept, who said that the U.S. Forest Service prohibits “motorized bikes” on trails.  However, Jackson County does allow e-bikes on the Greenway, while motorized bikes powered by an internal combustion engine (eg gasoline engine) are prohibited.  John contacted Mark Freeman to correct his report.

The speed limit of 15 MPH IS enforced on the Greenway for any kind of bike, e-bike or human-powered.
