It is time for mountain bikers to step up

Mountain bikers need to focus as much on the environment and climate change as they do on access to hiking trails, says rider and activist Dillon Osleger. After seeing the damage caused by the historic forest fires in the west this fall, Osleger says: “I don’t want to wait until the paths burn every year or until this sport is about to end. I think the fear that the world might be a worse place makes people want to protect what they know. “It’s time for the mountain bike community to step up and bridge the gap between recreation and activism. The Constant Gardener by Chris Burkard Studio and Specialized is a timely reminder to turn our passions into action.
