Using E-bikes in NH at National Parks

GSIL’s CEO, Deborah Ritcey applauds Governor Sununu for his advocacy on this topic.

“GSIL has many consumers, that while able to bike, are not able to navigate some of the mountainous terrains, leaving them unable to enjoy all New Hampshire has to offer,” Ritcey said.

“E-bikes are no different that SmartDrives for manual wheelchairs, a battery-operated device to assist those in need to propel their wheelchair. Are we now going to ban a wheelchair SmartDrive? By not allowing e-bikes in national forests, we are potentially, disregarding an already disregarded population.”
