Overland Park experiment with electric bikes received mixed reviews from residents, as the city’s 18-month pilot program nears an end this November.

The pilot project allowed certain types of motorized bikes on trails throughout Overland Park. With the project’s end date approaching, the city council’s Community Development committee on Wednesday heard a report about the pilot’s impact, including citizen feedback.
