The Verde Valley Cyclists Coalition held a meeting Monday, Feb. 11, to address the issue of a temporary forest order the U.S. Forest Service is considering that would restrict mountain bikes to established system trails.

U.S. Forest Service Recreation Staff Officer Jennifer Burns said a potential forest order restricting mountain bikes would help the Forest Service to achieve a short resource protection.VVCC President Lars Romig began by talking about how the coalition has partnered with the Forest Service in recent years by helping to plan and maintain trails, and how the Forest Service has recognized the need for increased recreational opportunities for mountain bikers.

“The more we get into working with each other, collaborate and know where we’re going, the better we’re going to work together,” Romig said. “The Forest Service has been seeing this evolution as it’s happened and has stepped up to the plate, and I, personally, in working with the Forest Service have seen a lot of this and experienced it, but it’s hard to get it out to the community how I feel and how I really see it, and I hope that being here tonight that people can see more of that.”

    Problem is, you are a small segment of the mountain bikers who use the forest. People come from around and out of state and ride wherever they want to go to get the full "Sedona" experience. Then there are the numerous illegal trails that have been built by local riders. It is a bad deal in many ways.
