BILL PRESTRIDGE, San Clemente

As an avid bike rider, I rode to Dana Hills High School from San Clemente the last 15 of my 38 years teaching there. I agree with Glen Griffith that bike riders should be allowed to use the Beach Trail. 

But where I disagree is the use of e-bikes. E-bikes are not bicycles; they are motorized vehicles. I do not believe that motorized vehicles should be allowed on the Beach Trail. 

I have had a few really close encounters with e-bike riders going way too fast on the Beach Trail and sidewalks in this town.
