Because our resident convicted criminal has never believed in
scientifically accurate, peer-reviewed, statistically sound, research.

The facts conflict with what he wishes was true.

Bottom line, there is _no_ research showing that mountain biking is any
more damaging to trails or wildlife than other recreational activities
such as hiking or horesback riding. In fact, horseback riding has
significantly greater impact on erosion and wildlife than hiking or
mountain biking. But equestrians are usually well-connected politically,
as well as being well-off financially, so attempts to ban horses from
these areas have been fruitless.

Yes there is. See http://mjvande.nfshost.com/scb7.htm (Wisdom et al).

BS. You didn't cite any reaesrch (as I did), because you CAN'T. It
doesn't exist!
