SLBC Safe Riding Rules
E-Bike Policy and Etiquette
The Sumter Landing Bicycle Club welcomes those with electric bikes (E-bikes) to join our regularly scheduled group rides. However, we do have a few stipulations. There are basically two types of E-bikes: pedal assist and throttle controlled, along with three classifications. Class I are E-bikes limited to 20 mph using pedal assist. Class II are throttled bikes that can ride with or without pedal assistance. Class III can be either category but speeds are limited to 28 mph.
SLBC permits all types of pedal assist E-bikes, however, we ask that cyclists choose to ride in groups of similar and familiar experience and expertise. Please remember, ride leaders have the discretion to ask you to leave if you are not riding within the advertised pace.
Throttle controlled E-bikes are not encouraged or recommended, but if that is what you have, we ask that you ride it strictly as a pedal assist E-bike.
Our intent and objective is that we all have fun, ride safe, and keep within the Ride Leader's designated pace and the group's skill level.
