    Basically the point was missed, its not the bikes, its the issue of not seeking public comment for rule changes as the NPS typically does. Class II bikes are included in the rule change, but are said...

    Agreed with Slo - the Chiropractor I used to alleviate some serious back pain issues is a Medical Doctor as well. There is a lot of science behind it.

    I've fallen a lot over the decades without major injury beyond a bruise or muscle strain here and there. When I passed 60 (which came and went like a freight train out of a tunnel without a light) I...

    Good points here. Humidity is a large player in condensation along with temperature differential. Ten degrees difference in water temperature in 80 degree weather isn't that much and being in the...

    Seriously wished the NPS had allowed comment before the rule change, which include Class II E-bikes that are powered without pedaling and have a throttle. Though apparently this is not much of an...

    The impacts of climatic change are being felt and will likely get worse over time given the level of willful ignorance. Hard to argue with science unless one just likes to argue.

    Have you removed the bladder(s) and felt inside the compartment it sits in to see if the bottom of the compartment is wet? I doubt two or three different bladders would have the same problem, if the...

    I stand corrected, that was how the original article I read stated the issue and part of the reason the thread was a question. Looking back, the horse reference may have been for multi-use trails. My...

    Well, if that's the case, they won't be allowed where bikes are allowed to go? Sounds kind of silly, where else would they ride?

    However, the larger point in all this was the complete lack of...

    I would think a rule change like this would be openly done and seek public and Agency comment as was the norm. Apparently that's no longer how things are done which will be handy for fossil fueled...

    I understand the sarcasm in this, but the issue is frustrating as it's an issue of ignorance and negligence. To me, the fight is with people who don't fully grasp the "Food Draws Animals" issue as...
