No Motorized Bicycles on the Towpath!

Today (8/21/08) about 5:30 pm, just west of Landing Lane, Towpathguy was passed by a rider on a power assisted hybrid bike, i.e., a bicycle with a motor and a guy pedaling -- going fast. This was not an electric bicycle -- from the noise and the smell it must have been a gas engine. The legality of this under NJ law is unclear. There are signs at most of the gates announcing that motorized vehicles are not allowed, and on the phone the D&R Canal headquarters affirmed that motorized vehicles are not allowed on the towpath.
