Riding Your Electric Bike In Utah: Laws, Best Trails Paths, And Where To Stop Along The Way

July 10, 2022

Ready for some excellent ebiking adventures? Dust off your favorite ebike, whether fat tire or cruiser, and head to Utah. There is so much to see and do.

Why Is Utah Good For Ebiking?

Utah has amazing scenery. From the peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the clefts of red rock canyons, the sheer diversity will astound you. The state population in general is very outdoor-sports oriented. This means that no matter where you bike in Utah, there is a strong network to support your ride.

Utah Ebike Laws

Ebikes may ride on any trail or road that allows regular bicycles. Local authorities may change or adjust that, so do check local laws where you are riding. Youths under the age of 16 may not ride a class 3 ebike on public property. Youths under 14 may not ride any ebike unless under the direct supervision of their parent or guardian. Children under age eight may not ride an ebike on public property, period.

What To Bring On Your Ebike Ride

First, bring an ebike that will do all the things you want it to do. Thanks to Utah's diversity, you can hit mountain trails or take flat valley paths. A versatile bike such as the EVRYjourney FATtire from sixthreezero is a wise choice for biking in Utah. It has great grip and traction for the more tricky trails and still provides a smooth ride in the flatlands. 

In addition, never bike in Utah without the following:

  • Lots and lots of water
  • Sunscreen and bug spray
  • A hat or helmet and sunglasses
  • A light waterproof jacket or pullover
  • A small first aid kit
  • Snacks

Despite areas of lush green, Utah is pretty much a desert. You can dehydrate quickly and burn in the intense sun if you're not careful.

Best Utah Trails & Paths For Ebiking

For mountain biking in Utah, everyone goes to Moab. The Slickrock Trail is justifiably famous. While you're there you should also do Porcupine Rim and the Whole Enchilada. Those trails are for experienced mountain bikers only.

If you want a road ride, take the route to Antelope Island. This is 46.8-mile out-and-back starts in Syracuse and stays on paved roads all the way to the Fielding Garr Ranch on Antelope Island. You can see bison, mule deer, bighorn sheep, and pronghorn antelope on the island.

Best Scenic Routes To Ebike

No doubt about it, the most beautiful bike ride in Utah is down Scenic Byway 12, the All-American Road. It runs from Escalante to Boulder in southern Utah for a total of 54 miles round trip. This is red rock country and it will take your breath away.

Don't miss the River to River Ride in the Wasatch Valley. This trail starts in Vivian Park up in Provo Canyon and follows various waterways all the way to the Jordan River and Utah Lake. You will see the Rockies up close and personal on this path.

Shops & Restaurants To Stop At

You will find plenty of good places to eat when ebiking the Ogden River Parkway. It's a flat ride along the river with lovely views of the mountains. End your ride in historic downtown Ogden where you will find plenty of fine dining options as well as shopping and museums.

EBike Safety & Precautions

If you ride in the evening, at night, or at dawn, you must have a white headlight, red taillight, and side reflectors. Follow all traffic rules and use hand signals. And of course, have a high-quality bike lock on hand.
