It so provides that bicycle trails need to provide protection for cyclists from traffic of moving over 20 miles per hour. The bill also includes electric assisted bicycles in the bikeways guidelines and removes such bicycles from the Code Section prohibiting their use on the highways of the state. Additionally, the legislation establishes three classes of electric assisted bicycles.
