    If this year in politics has proven anything is that liberals are by in large a very dumb group of people knee-jerking to their media fueled hyperbole emotions and it appears that IMBA's "leadership" is dominated by the same's a "let's cut our nose off to spite our face" mentality...there is no good explanation for their Self destructive ignorance

    So I wrote People for Bikes and this was their reply (interesting job title of the person who responded):

    We aren't taking a position on this bill.

    Ok, so I emailed my Congressman regarding his support for HR1349 and finally received this response from him today.

    Spoken like a true politician:

    Dear Mr. Smith:

    Thank you for contacting me. It is good to hear from you and I’m pleased to respond.

    I believe in reasonable legislation and funding that would protect our wildlife, by keeping their habitats safer. The natural beauty of our wilderness is something all Americans can enjoy and I hope we continue to provide that opportunity for generations to come.

    As you may know, H.R. 1349 would allow bicycles and other forms of human-powered locomotion in wilderness areas at the discretion of local land managers . Supporters of this bill argue that it provides for easier access to Wilderness Areas for all citizens and that bikes cause no more environmental wear and tear than hiking or horseback riding. This bill has been approved by the House Natural Resources Committee and awaits a vote from the full House. You can be sure I will keep your views in mind as I monitor the progress of this legislation.

    I appreciate the opportunity to work for you in Congress. Please visit , my various social media sites (@JudgeCarter), and feel free to contact me in the future with any concerns you may have.


    John Carter
    Member of Congress
