According to IMBA, “The BLM’s decision reflects a growing understanding of recreation as a valuable public lands resource, but it may be a temporary victory because the leases haven’t been permanently closed. Moab advocates, including former IMBA Board President Ashley Korenblatt and others, will try for a lasting solution to this issue while also keeping an eye on remaining open leases near areas like Tusher Canyon.”
A hearty tip of the helmet goes to all those mountain bikers who took the time to get involved and voice their opinion on this matter.
