Park Authority Updates E-bike Regulations
On April 10, 2019, the Park Authority Board voted to approve an update to Park Authority Regulation 1.14, Motor Vehicles and Traffic, to align with Virginia Code and NOVA Parks regulation on the use of electric powered bikes (e-bikes) on park trails. Guidelines were also approved to provide recommendations for e-bike use on park trails.
Commonwealth of Virginia law allows the use of e-bikes wherever regular bicycles are allowed. The Virginia Code regulate e-bikes with a power rating less than 1,000 watts, and top powered speed of 25 mph as bicycles that can be used on trails and shared use paths.
The survey was developed based on community input from first round survey results last year. The current survey will gather feedback from residents on future corridor transportation improvements and help the project team decide which improvements will be selected for screening and testing.
