    Little Help?

    . . . Preserving mountain bike access around Mt Hood.

    This might have made it around already:

    Congressmen Greg Walden (R-OR) and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) have introduced the Mount Hood Stewardship and Legacy Act (H.R. 5025) to protect 77,500 acres around Mount Hood from development, resource extraction and road building, and would provide considerable resources for trails and recreation.

    IMBA and the Oregon Mountain Bike Alliance (ORMBA) support the legislation and appreciate all the considerations the congressmen have made for Oregon mountain bikers. However, IMBA and ORMBA ask that 33 acres of land be removed from the 77,500-acre Wilderness proposal to allow for continued mountain bike use of trails at Roaring River. Formal Wilderness designations prohibit bicycle access.

    The Roaring River area, southwest of Mount Hood, provides a backcountry experience that mountain bikers cherish. Just like hikers and equestrians, two existing users of Wilderness, bicyclists enjoy the beauty of our wild places and want continued access to this important area.

    Congressmen Walden and Blumenauer have worked closely with the mountain bike community to draft legislation that addresses our existing recreation use in the area. Many important places such as Larch Mountain, Fifteenmile Creek, Dog River Trail, Shellrock, Hellroaring, Bonney Butte, Mount Defiance were not included in the bill and cyclists will be able to continue to ride these places.




    If you haven't already, go to the link where there is a list and contact information for the Oregon Congressional delegation. There is also an open letter urging congress to keep the Roaring River open to Mountain Biking access, copy the text of the letter to the representatives (or write your own) and forward to the representatives.

    There is strength in numbers and your voice does count.

    Thank you,
    Charlie
