    This is different than the >400 miles threatened that I mentioned in the TR from last month.

    Done did it, but I am skeptical that form letters from some dude in CA are given much weight. No harm in trying.

    Thanks. It is federal land so belongs to all of us. Plus the forest is pivoting from more natural resource extraction focus to more recreation, so out of town visits are key. This is different from a typical travel plan comment because it is the result of a law suite that the judge found the USFS didn't get enough input from the mtb crowd, so I think total numbers count.

    “In the ruling, Judge Christensen also said that we did not provide an adequate objection response period regarding the closure of trails in Wilderness Study Areas (WSAs) to bicycles."
