As we all know, IMBA'S #1 rule of the trail is..."Ride On Open Trails Only. Respect trail and road closures -- ask a land manager for clarification if you are uncertain about the status of a trail. Do not trespass on private land. Obtain permits or other authorization as may be required. Be aware that bicycles are not permitted in areas protected as state or federal Wilderness." http://www.imba.com/about/trail_rules.html
Do any of the routes the Montana Mountain Bike Alliance wants Senator Tester to designate mountain biking trails in his Wilderness Bill cross private property? Are any of these trails, or portions of them, on private lands? If so, are all of these private land trails open to mountain biking? Have MMBA members or directors been trespassing? Have they been publicly encouraging others to do the same?
Is the MMBA, unintentionally or otherwise, promoting trespassing and giving all responsible mountain bikers a bad name?
I sure hope the answer to all of these questions is a resounding "no."
