Report on Summit County Rec Path – July 17, 2019 by Jenny and Stan Sunderwirth
Jenny and I rode a good portion of the Summit County Rec Path yesterday. It was the first time we have ridden it since they allowed class 1 e-bikes. It was a Wednesday but it was the most busy we have ever seen. It was hard to find a parking spot at the trailhead.
About 40% of the cyclists were using e-bikes, many of them rented. This was a predicted result of allowing e-bikes: more people riding on the trail.The trail itself had been repaved in several areas. It was very nice. We rode just over 40 miles of the trail. Frisco, Dillon and Breckenridge all had lots of e-bikes.
