MTBR riders,
I was reading the article in the Las Vegas Sun about the Sloan Canyon NCA Resource Management Plan the other day. The thing that struck was the fact that the BLM was getting very few public comments during this open Protest Period that ends November 13th.

Okay guys, we need to comment to the BLM letting them know that we would like to see an increase in the total mountain bike area. We would also like to see a sustainable trail system (if only a large loop) developed off of the dirt roads. Right now the BLM plan is showing very limited mountain bike area. I think there is a great opportunity to open a multi-use trail between the proposed Visitor's Center and the Anthem Trails -- but that corridor is not on the BLM Management Plan.

Visit BARTA's website and go to the Advocacy page at: http://www.barta-nv.com/

and then email your commens to them at: [email protected]

Send notes to all your mountain biking friends and have them respond as well.

Thanks,
matt
