What can I do?

We have a lot of work to do —    At the federal level and at the state.

First, contact your congressperson here     Tell them you want a bill introduced to modify 16CFR1512 to include *all* types of bicycles and human-powered vehicles    An example of what we think is a good definition would look like this

1512.2

(A)  A bicycle is a device upon which any person or persons may ride, propelled solely by human power through a belt, chain, or gears, and having two or more wheels including devices whereby the rider is assisted by an electric motor of fewer than 750 watts (1 h.p.), whose maximum speed on a paved level surface, when powered solely by such a motor while ridden by an operator who weighs 170 pounds, is less than 20 mph

 

Sub-Section B would no longer be needed

ok we again remind you that we are not lawyers, but we think this is a good start.

Next.  Find your state laws — if they do not fit the model definition find your representative here 

 

The language you want should look like this. The political process is slow, but this is how to start it

 

A bicycle is a device upon which any person or persons may ride, propelled solely by human power through a belt, chain, or gears, and having two or more wheels, excluding mopeds.

For reference, you can show them these states  as their code is at least inclusive enough for all our riding needs
