On Friday the Department of the Interior put a rule on the table to ease restrictions on backcountry biking in National Parks, according to a story in the Washington Post. The new rule would basically put mountain biking access in the hands of individual part superintendants, who now have to go through a rulemaking before being able to allow bikes in parks. Environmentalists and recreation advocates will most certainly clash during the 60-day comment period, which is taking place now before the rule is put in place.
