The Summer 2016 edition of Wilderness Watcher, the Quarterly Newsletter of Wilderness Watch, alerts readers to an effort to amend the 1964 Wilderness Act to allow mountain bicycles to use our wilderness areas. Currently, the Act says that "no form of mechanical transport" is permitted within designated wilderness areas. A mountain bike support group called The Sustainable Trails Coalition has drafted legislation to amend that provision out of the Act, and has hired a Washington, D.C. lobbying firm to get the legislation passed.
If you would rather have our wilderness areas STAY wild, it's probably not too early to let your members of Congress know what you think.
I know what I think. Leave It Alone!
