How to document bikes on the PCT

Postby postholer » Thu Oct 11, 2012 5:00 pm

We've set up 2 different ways to document bikes on the PCT.

The first is to show the location and your photos of encounters along the PCT. Login and select "Mt Bike Impact" under location, then click the link "Edit Markers". You'll be able to add/edit your encounters:

The second is this forum for a more free form method:

Documenting your encounters is in the best interest of everyone. It will assist those making the decisions to get clear and precise information, without conjecture or subjectivity.

As a PCT hiker or equestrian, I know you'll want to do your part in keeping The Trail free of bikes.

Found this disturbing video this morning concerning bikes on the trail - Here is the link to the youtube video -

This needs to be stopped soon before it gets out of control. :evil:

There's no way I can predict how the USFS will respond. It could be a reinforcement of the closure, or on the opposite side of the pendulum they could simply remove the closure effectively opening all non-W PCT to bikes immediately.
