|The Environment & You|
Whenever an individual or group embarks on a bike ride through the back
country, they are not only concerned about themselves, but also the environment.
Although mountain bikes may well reap less havoc on the environment than
motorcycles, they do leave a small trace on the land. It is critical for riders
to minimize their impact on their surroundings while riding. Remember, all
mountain bike riders are ambassadors of the activity, and should reflect a
sincere appreciation for the rules of the trail.
