E-bike turf war: Where electric mountain bikes are allowed, and why

What’s the fight over eMTBs? It has something to do with environmentalism, disability rights, culture clashes and Trump administration rules. But for some riders, it comes down to fun – and who’s allowed to have it.

FOUNTAIN HILLS, Arizona – A gray-haired dude jumped on his mountain bike and began pedaling into the Sonoran desert along a rocky, single-track path.

The trail at McDowell Mountain Regional Park wound past towering saguaros, around paloverde trees in blooming splendor and through sand-filled arroyos. There was no sound except the grind of tires on gravel, the gush of a May breeze and the occasional call of sentinel quail.
