Can E-Bikes co-exist with walkers on trails? King County proposes test.

Seattle’s Parks and Recreation department is proposing a pilot project to help electric bikes coexist with walkers, joggers and other cyclists on popular mixed use trails, including the Burke-Gilman.
The yearlong project, which if approved would begin Memorial Day weekend, establishes rules for trail users and comes amid a new state law that allows certain e-bikes on shared-use paths unless a local jurisdiction bans them.
