NPS Listening Sessions in Colorado

This is from IMBA but may interest you if you’d like to have input into the future of trail access in Nationl Parks. A special thanks to IMBA for the info.


Just this weekend, the National Park Service (NPS) announced four new public meetings in Colorado as part of a nationwide series where citizens will provide input on how national parks should be managed. IMBA urges mountain bikers to attend the listening sessions, in order to strengthen the productive relationship that mountain bicyclists have forged with the NPS, and to ask for increased bicycling opportunities in national parks for decades to come.
