Sustainable Trails Coalition gets Human Powered Wilderness Travel Bill introduced to Congress
Progress is being made by the Sustainable Trails Coalition (STC)!
The Human-Powered Travel in Wilderness Areas Act S.3205 has been introduced in Congress by Senator Mike Lee of Utah. San Diego Mountain Biking Association has supported the vision of STC from the beginning.
An article on Singletracks.com sums up the bill and next steps that you can take to help.
The STC states that “There’s absolutely zero connection to any other legislative agenda. All the bill will do is (1) allow local land managers to decide if mountain bikers and other currently disallowed human-powered travelers can use a particular trail, and (2) remind the agencies that they can use hand-held and hand-maneuvered tools like wheelbarrows to maintain Wilderness trails better than they now do. All nonmotorized Wilderness visitors should support this legislation.”
The STC will post a form soon so you can send your voice of support to your elected officials. We will share as soon as it is available.
Spread the word! Tell your friends! All MTB voices will be needed here.
