FROM IMBA: The 160-bill Public Lands Omnibus Management Act, has been signed into law. Many of the bills –Ã‚Â including those in Oregon, Virginia and Colorado –Ã‚Â were shaped with mountain bikers’ interests in mind.Ã‚Â One of theÃ‚Â Omnibus ActÃ¢â‚¬â„¢sÃ‚Â biggest benefits is the use of creative solutions to protect bicycle access and the environment. In particular, companion land designations that IMBA favors — like National Scenic Area and National Recreation Area — are giving land managersÃ‚Â new options for bicycle-friendly land protection. Unfortunately, though, prized riding opportunities were lost in West Virginia (Wild Monongahela Wilderness) and California (Eastern Sierra and Northern San Gabriel Wilderness).
