It’s no secret that we’re proponents of a common-sense and logic based approach when it comes to Wilderness land management issues involving mountain bike access. Fortunately, the Sustainable Trails Coalition has been leading the charge on the Wilderness front, and has put together a grassroots movement picking up where IMBA and other bike advocates have fallen short. Contrary to what many of STC’s opponents will have you believe, they are not advocating that ALL Wilderness lands be opened up to bike access. Instead, they’re proposing the act be amended (which was changed in the early 1980’s to exclude bicycles) to allow bikes on a case-by-case basis, or where there is existing precedent and/or trail access already in place.
To help fund the Sustainable Trails Coalition’s efforts, we’re donating 100% of the proceeds of our #saveourtrails stickers to STC. Get yours here.
