Electric bicycles banned from St. Pete Beach
January 5, 2022 - A new ordinance now prohibits electric bicycles from operating on St. Pete Beach, and regular bicycles could be banned next. St. Pete Beach city commissioners recently passed the “Micromobility Ordinance” banning motorized bicycles, scooters and hoverboards from both the beach and city sidewalks. The ordinance was in response to resident and visitor safety. In 2020, the Beach Stewardship Committee recommended that no bicycles of any type should be allowed on the beach. The commission will address that recommendation in February.
