There's been a hot little debate going on in the Mountain Bike world and we'd like to think that we have our finger on the pulse of the mountain bike world. So we are testing our theory. The advent of the STC(Sustainable Trails Coalition) is anew organization that has been fueling this debate with their raising funds as a 501c4 organization to lobby Washington to allow Mtn bikes into Wilderness. That is a broad statement as it is not that simple and much more detailed than that. But in the interest of brevity, feel free to read up on it here ---> http://www.sustainabletrailscoalition.org/ If you really want to learn more, head to their facebook page as they have done a great job of framing their argument.

Here's our question, Do you support allowing MTB's in wilderness areas? We don't want this to become a shit slinging fest, we just want to know what people think as we advocate for you and want to know if we're doing it right. Please take the poll below and feel free to comment if you'd like.

I do support allowing MTBs into these places. I feel the STC has a good point when they say this will help in raising awareness of the problems, and help cause trails to be better maintained. The other aspects of STCs maifesto of goals are equally as important. I cannot believe that the addtion of MTBs, strollers and such will have an overall detrimental effect, altho in some places they may. Their point about the ban on using wheelbarrows and powered tools to maintain trails is also patently ridiculous.
There is enough land out there for all to enjoy, as long as our mode of transport is human powered.
