E-bikes have been approved to use the Legacy Trail.
We were excited to read the recent Sarasota Herald Tribune article by Timothy Fanning on the announcement of the approval of e-bike usage on the Legacy Trail. The Board of County Commissioners of Sarasota passed a resolution to add e-bikes as an approved transportation method following the same rules as bicycles and the 15 MPH approved speed limit.
This follows the recently made announcement regarding the proposed expansion of the trail to Payne Park in downtown Sarasota. When completed, this trail will provide over 30 miles of continuous paved trail providing access to local neighborhoods and place 27 schools within one linear mile of the Legacy Trail; another 45 would be within two linear miles.
Make your bicycle or e-bike commute to work safe and enjoyable by using the trail.
