Wilderness Bill Clears First Hurdle in Congress
First of all, if you saw Ted Stroll's Testimony to the Committee, he clearly says that certain types of mountain bikers will not be going into Wilderness Areas. I really don't think that's the case. If you allow mountain bikes then all types of mountain bikers will be going into Wilderness Areas

Wilderness Bill Clears First Hurdle in Congress
There is already a protected land area that mountain bikes can ride in. It's called National Recreation Areas. Wilderness Areas were created for the preservation of the land, recreation has always been a low priority for Wilderness Areas. The Wilderness Act clearly says "no other form of mechanical transport." It's worked perfectly for 53 years, why change it now?

Wilderness Bill Clears First Hurdle in Congress
This Bill is sponsored by the same lawmakers that want to reduce Bears Ears by 85%. This is a recipe for disaster.

@JustinVP: Justin, Bears Ears and the Wilderness are the exact same issue. If the Republicans reduced Bears Ears by 85% for a mining company, well, they will be just as willing to reduce or eliminate Wilderness Areas for special interests. Even Ted Stroll of STC says that the Wilderness Act has only been amended one time for a small technical issue. The Wilderness Act is doing absolutely fine as it is. There already is a land protection designation that allows bikes. It's called National Recreation Areas. It protects the land from timber, mining and oil, etc, and you can go mountain biking. To me, that's what you guys should b pushing for. Unfortunately, you think we need to make some other designation and try to reinvent the wheel.

Opinion: Great Rides Don't Always Have Happy Endings
Look at what the Republicans did to Bears Ears, no wonder IMBA has dropped it's support of the Bikes in the Wilderness Bill by the Sustainable Trails Coalition

@boxxerace: @boxxerace: Well, according to the email I got from Yvonne, Evergreen is not pushing for mountain biking access to either the PCT or Wilderness Areas. They have opted not to be a part of STC's effort. It's obvious that the STC Bill stinks. IMBA couldn't stand the smell of Bears Ears being reduced by 85%, and they are not willing to let that happen to Wilderness Area. Good for them, and good for Evergreen

@vernonfelton: Hey, Vernon, have you changed your mind yet about letting the Republican mess with Wilderness Areas? They have proposed carving up Bears Ears by 85%. They are probably itching to get their hands on Wilderness Areas

@leelau: You know those Congressman that want to cut Bears Ears National Monument by 85%. They are the same ones that are sponsoring the STC Bill. If you care anything about the environment, you should stay far away from STC

I'd have to agree with Evergreen. They have been leading the way with their stance that mountain bikes really shouldn't be in Wilderness Areas. The Roaring Fork Mountain Biking Association is even a better example. They deserve it
