As part one of a three part series about Mountain Bikes in US Wilderness Areas we begin with a history lesson. Starting from the beginning, in 1964 when the Wilderness Act was signed moving to how it’s effected local trail associations today. We’ll hear from Yvonne Kraus, Executive Director of the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance and Lance Pysher, President of the Bitterroot Backcountry Cyclists on what there respective groups are doing to a address trail loss. And we’ll also get some perspective from Ian Jones, President of the Southwest Montana Mountain Bike Association and Ryan Dunfee, AddUp Community Manager at the Sierra Club. Part 2 will be with Eric Melson of IMBA and Part 3 with Ted Stroll of the Sustainable Trails Coalition.
For the second part in our series looking at the relationship between the Advocacy world and the Cycling Industry we look at how Trail Organizations can create and grow partnerships. First we hear from Seb Kemp, Canadian Brand Manager of Santa Cruz and Juliana Bicycles. Then we dig into the North Shore Trail Adoption Plan (TAP) with North Shore Mountain Bike Association Board Member and TAP Coordinator: Cynthia Young.
A Podcast for the people that truly make mountain biking happen. Not the riders, racers, or product designers but the builders, advocates and the often forgotten Board Members of your local Mountain Bike Trail Association.
