Sunday afternoon a rally was held Sunday afternoon to show support for Collingwood's e-bikers, and the efforts of two local men to convince town council to reverse a decision keeping e-bikes off the municipal trail system."I just wish they got a little more information before they made their decision," said Don Deacon, whose e-bike is his primary mode of transportation to the hospital and around town.
"Many cyclist go faster than we do," said Coulter.
"We're respectful. I always honk my horn at blind corners to let people know I coming," said Deacon. "I don't think they'd know otherwise, these bikes are so quiet."
Currently, a petition is being circulated in and around Collingwood in the hope of getting council to change its mind with regards to this issue.
