Deadline August 1

The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) and the National Parks and Conservation Association (NPCA) urge mountain bikers nationwide to ask for improved bicycling in Grand Teton National Park and the Jackson, Wyoming, area. With your help, Grand Teton and Jackson could become a model trail community.

Grand Teton National Park is creating a new transportation plan and public comments must be submitted by Aug. 1.

Cyclists are urged to send a letter to Grand Teton National Park Superintendent Mary Gibson Scott and tell her that you support the Improved Alternative 4 transportation plan.

Improved Alternative 4 will create a trail system from the town of Jackson to Colter Bay and from Teton Village to Moose, totaling 50 miles of continuous pathways and enhanced access to more than 40 miles of dirt roads, some of near-single-track quality.

IMBA also suggests you ask the superintendent to consider improving singletrack and narrow trail access for mountain biking where appropriate and in accordance with IMBA's recent partnership agreement with the National Park Service.

Learn more about the plan and send a letter.
