Bicycle Crash

Pacific Grove City Council voted 5-2 to allow two common varieties of electric bikes along the nearly mile-long and highly scenic stretch Monterey Bay Recreation Trail that passes through Pacific Grove. While e-bikes will be allowed on the trail, they will be restricted to 12 MPH. There is no speed limit for bicycles on the trail, and conflicts between bike riders and pedestrians there are a daily occurrence. Nevertheless, some council members welcomed the much heavier and faster e-bikes.
