This presentation will provide insights into current practices for completing cycling safety assessments of a multi-use trail, such as the scenic 40 km long Valley Trail network in Whistler.  In addition, the findings of an investigation into what characterizes power assisted bicycles, electric scooters, e-bikes or other Personal Mobility Devices (PMVs) will be shared.   This allowed Whistler to develop a policy for allowing e-bikes and other emerging PMVs on non-motorised municipal facilities, such as sidewalks, bike lanes, multi-use pathways and trails within its jurisdiction while restricting others to the street.
