Silverbear it is pedal only, but if you want to bring a motorbike down to show off I'm sure everybody would be very interested and I can lone you out a pedal bike if you need one. Also electric bikes up to 1000w are permitted on any mn bike trail. You could also ride a motorized bicycle if the engine is disengaged. If you have a belt drive that just means pull the belt off. This is a very leisure ride (limited terrain) up a nd down the banks of the mississippi river near the historic birth place of Minneapolis. We go under the grain belt sign, by the mill city ruins. It's only a short ride about an 1hr and then some hanging out in the parking lot and voting on your favorite bike.
