    Your 2 minutes are needed for MTB access in Montana Wilderness Study Areas.

    This couldn't be any easier. Just make sure to add your name, address and phone IN the comment field (not just in the fields that ask for them after). You don't have to live in Montana. Feel free to add anything you'd like to say as well... but that isn't necessary.

    Please share with your MTB friends and groups.

    Please help the Bitterroot Backcountry Cyclists save 110 miles of sweet singletrack in Montana’s Bitterroot National Forest.

    Diehards who want to block mountain biking in the Sapphire and Blue Joint Wilderness Study Areas have submitted more than 250 comments praising the Forest Service’s preliminary decision to close these two WSAs to bicycling.

    But the proposed closure isn't a done deal, and we can reverse it.

    Countering comments are needed by Monday, November 19, 2018. It’s important to tell the Forest Service that you object to its initial decision to prohibit mountain biking in the Sapphire and Blue Joint WSAs.

    The form below contains a comment template that you can adapt if you wish—or just send in the template comments.

    Please fill in all required fields, entering your full name, mailing address, and email in the body of the message template; and do not change the subject line! Otherwise, your comment will bounce and you won't be heard from.

    Big thanks to San Diego Mountain Biking Association for automating this and making it available to all of us!

    I used some of my own words, maybe uniquely worded responses will have more of an impact.

    We have a state natural area with an exemption to allow bicycle use on the trails. However, horse use is not permitted. Below are the reasons.

    "Horseback riding – Horseback riding is not permitted anywhere within the natural area. Horses can cause significant degradation of natural resources through dispersal of invasive exotic pest plants, increased soil erosion, trampling and loss of vegetation, soil compaction, alteration of wetland areas, and decreased water quality."
