Biking in McCall: How E-Bikes are different
Did you know that some E-Bikes can go up to 50 miles per hour?  While the average E-bike goes about 20, some have the capability to go much faster.  E-cyclists are more likely to be hospitalized after an accident than other riders, and three times more likely to injure a pedestrian than other riders. E-bikes are gaining popularity, and it's crucial to prioritize safety, especially for our younger riders. Please keep these safety tips in mind when you are riding:
- Slow down and be cautious when around people.
