The City of Sanibel has officially banned e-bikes across its beaches.

The Sanibel City Council had been discussing banning electronic bikes but on Tuesday voted to outlaw them on the beach and beach accesses.

The ban will be implemented in 14 days, according to the city.

The talk of getting rid of the bikes began at a City Council meeting in May, where they noted an increase in electric bicycle traffic on the beach.

The city’s first discussion was held in July.
