And yet Oakridge is frequently touted as a success story. Off the main street, it is like a ghost town of boarded up businesses and run down houses. It's a great location, with lots of opportunity for outdoor recreation. The problem is that with the demise of logging and the mill*, jobs are few and…
Good points. One missed though, is that frequently these rural, resource dependent areas are told that recreation will be their salvation. Instead, blue collar jobs are replaced with minimum wage tourism based jobs, while housing costs dramatically increase.

Day 4 of sunshine. Getting out as a storm comes in. via Strava
Right on @jacksonr. Somehow they argue that the scenario you describe is low impact, yet a MTBer that rides the same loop in a long day, and is back at the car at dark is somehow more intrusive. Less camping, less fires, less nights in the woods, less pooping in the woods, yet we're the…
Perhaps people back east should worry about your local access issues. It sounds like you think every acre of federal land is equal. If that were the case, Wilderness people would not be so preoccupied with preserving 'the best' of those lands. Which all users would like to use, not just hikers. Perhaps if there…
Good summary guys. FYI, you might look into IMBA's declining finances too. I haven't seen their 2016 990 come out yet, but the ones on guidestar through 2015 show a significant decline in revenues. I suspect that is only getting worse.

I think you mean 'despite the hype, only 42% of riders use these devices, which allow a rider to avoid the famous compromise of 'cheap, light, strong - pick two' by now having a product where a rider can feasibly pick none'. What's next, 'only 3% of riders are on ebikes...whats wrong with the other…
