Montana outfitter to offer e-bike rentals on mountain road
A Montana outfitter has announced plans to purchase multiple electric bikes for rental use on a scenic mountain road in Glacier National Park.
The Flathead Beacon reports that Glacier Guide and Montana Raft Company is already taking reservations for bike rentals and guided tours on Going-to-the-Sun Road in spring 2020.
Officials say the decision comes months after the federal government ruled to allow powered bikes to be used in national parks.
Company officials say at least 10 e-bikes would be purchased to start.
Officials say they have plans to make test trips with the bikes in April to see how the bikes can withstand the elevating road.
