Good news, it should nudge Arlington County to reassess its trail ban on Class 1 and 2 e-bikes, growing more urgent now the County itself provides e-bikes through the Capital Bikeshare Plus trial and BikeArlington promotes family cycling using e-bikes e.g. http://www.bikearlington.com/trail-connection-meet-igor/

Interesting that the study found e-bikes going a bit slower than standard bikes on MUTs. I have a feeling that's due to the study not including cyclists using their own bikes and e-bikes (which would certainly be harder to track and study) and rental e-bikes having a lower fixed top speed.
However, based on my daily commuting on the MVT, e-bikes go much faster than standard bikes and 25 mph is too fast a top limit, since 20-25 is about the average pace of personal e-bikes I've seen, regardless of wind conditions or hills.
