They seem to be pushing them to older guys. We'll see how it goes.

Around here (western NY), I see them pull up to a trailhead looking all shiny on the back of someone's car, then eventually the owner notices the NO E-BIKE signage, and they leave. I've never actually seen one on the trails. We have such a large rider base out here that I doubt anyone would try it because someone would say something.

The reason a lot of serious cyclists hate them is because they don't want to be associated with the motorized crowd like they are already viewed of in terms of the law a lot of times. A lot of these groups fought long and hard to get the access to build trails where they have, and they wouldn't jeopardize that to gain a few older or less fit supporters.
