      “…We arbitrarily drew the line right around bicycles.” Quote from the US Forest Service in 1983 on how mountain bikes got banned from Wilderness.

      Wow, nice find! And “because they’re not generally considered compatible with the wilderness concept.” Did they take a survey or something to come to this conclusion? Or was this just common knowledge at the time? 🙂

        Not Fake news. Here in Virginia there are areas of the Jefferson And George Washington National forests that are designated as “Wilderness” areas. They are clearly marked and can be traveled by foot only. No Bikes, Horses or mechanical/motorized means allowed. Even the forest Rangers travel by foot in these areas. It is not all forest areas. Just certain designated areas.
