    How would you like to bikepack the PCT?

    Nice article just published:
    Advocates hope for reversal of Pacific Crest Trail bike ban

    Bike advocates say the 1988 ban was done too abruptly, without public comment or opportunity to appeal. The Oregon-based group, Disciples of Dirt, who fully supports the mission of Sharing the PCT, wrote on their website that the ban was "just fear and misunderstanding, mixed with a lot of well funded ignorance."

    In 2010, a group of citizen activists decided to probe further into the 1988 decision. They wrote a letter to the USFS on November 12, 2010 asking them to "put in place a process to examine the continuing usefulness of the 1988 closure order."

    Great article. I hope everyone on this forum becomes proactive and signs up on the web site and Facebook. The USFS works with organized, devoted user groups.

    I just saw this article about 10 minutes ago. I'd be into it. I hiked 8 miles out and back on the AT last weekend and some of the trail would be awesome on a bike!
    some of it not so much!

    This is great although I'm on the opposite coast I support it and wish we had a trail like this on the East coast!

    Thanks for posting it, Chum.

    East, west, doesn't matter to me...I'd travel to ride any stellar long trail.
