IMBA Working to Pass Public Lands Protection in the San Gabriel Mountains
When the San Gabriels Forever first released their plan for Wilderness IMBA advocates were concerned that mountain bikers were going to lose yet another epic trail to a wilderness campaign. Just outside of Los Angeles, this area is important to L.A. area cyclists looking to get away from the city. Thanks to the hard work and long hours of the Concerned Off-Road Bicyclists Association (CORBA) and IMBA’s Tom Ward, we can now rally behind this land protection bill. The trail in question was made into a non-wilderness corridor that will preserve it for future riding it’s serene, wild setting. The bill is moving forward and will be carried to congress by U.S. Rep. David Drier (R-CA).
