Electric Bikes

As of September 20, 2018, the Pilot Electric Bicycle (E-bike) Program has completed its one year trial. During the one year trial period, E-bikes utilized the Animas River Trail, Florida Road Trail and Goeglein Gulch Road Trail. The Chapman Hill dirt connector route between Florida Road and Fort Lewis College was also included in the pilot program. E-bikes may be ridden on City streets and bike lanes at any time. Written comments regarding the E-bike Pilot Program should be sent to the Parks and Recreation Department or call (970) 375-7321 for additional information.

The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, the Natural Lands Preservation Advisory Board and the Multimodal Advisory Board will be holding a Joint Advisory Board meeting on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. at the Durango Community Recreation Center, to discuss the results of the E-bike Pilot Program.
