Judge calls for review of bicycle ban inside national forest
A district judge has ruled to keep motorized vehicles out of remote parts of Bitterroot National Forest but decided officials need to hear from bicyclists who believe they’ve been unfairly shut out from trails.
“It’s a pretty good result for the Bitterroot Backcountry Cyclists,” plaintiffs’ attorney Paul Turcke said yesterday. “The court declared the agency decision to close the areas unlawful as far as bicycles are concerned. For snowmobiles, not so much” (Rob Chaney, Missoulian, July 2).
