Default forget about banning bikes how about banning motorizeds frst?

the vast majority of environmental destruction at least in the soutwest
deserts is from motorized off-road vehicles (and horses) not from
bikes-particularly the fragile topsoil there. i think we should start
there...and adding to that how about Edward Abbey's great idea for our
national parks. ie Yosemite. put a gate at the front and give everyone a
bike to ride or offer a shuttle to the campground and use the shuttles for
transporting camping gear, food etc. have the rangers who used to direct
traffic drive the shuttles. and any americanus slobbicus who refuses to
leave their vehicle wouldnt be able to enjoy the scenery. that would do a
lot more to save our wildlands than banning bikes.

You are right dude. ATVs destroy trails, I don't wanna hear people bitch
when my 2 inch tires wheel over some dirt. it's better than four big ass
tires digging in and spewing it everywhere.

Yes, I always think about the destruction by ATVs when I see those posts
worrying about wide tire bikes.
