E-Bike regulations

The Jackson Town Council voted unanimously to create a 15 mph speed limit on pathways within town limits.

Jackson’s e-bikes should be moving slower by spring.

Town councilors voted unanimously Monday to create a 15 mph speed limit on pathways within town limits, adding signage throughout the pathways, and, lastly, implementing “chicane” gates to slow down riders in high-traffic areas like ballfields.

E-bike safety class

Jackson Hole Middle School student Grady Lewis, 13, maneuvers his dad’s e-bike through traffic cones last summer during an e-bike safety class at the school. Jackson Town Council members approved a recommendation that the program be hired out to a third party.
