IMBA California Working with Legislators on Wilderness Bill
On Sept. 27, U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer and Congresswoman Mary Bono introduced the California Desert and Mountain Heritage Act which proposes Wilderness protection for approximately 200,000 acres in Riverside County. Formal Wilderness designation protects the land from development and resource extraction but does not allow mountain bikes. IMBA California representatives have been working closely with Senator Boxer's and Congresswoman Bono's staff, as well as with local mountain bikers, to ensure that the proposed legislation is shaped with mountain bikers' needs in mind. For more information, contact IMBA California Policy Director Tom Ward, tom@imba.com.

Trails Solutions Selected to Design Trails at Mammoth
IMBA's Trail Solutions has been selected as the consultant for natural-surface trails at Mammoth resort. Professionals on the Trail Solutions team will work closely with ALTA Planning and Design, who is providing planning services for paved pathways and road systems. According to IMBA's Cimarron Chacon, Mammoth has plans to become a "premier year-round resort community." The planning includes a multi-jurisdictional partnership with the town of Mammoth Lakes and the US Forest Service. Additional partners include Mammoth Mountain resort and the MLTPA, a local non-profit.

State Recreational Trails Committee Hears From Mountain Bikers
IMBA California representatives recently provided input to the State Recreational Trails Committee concerning the management of multi-use trails throughout the state. The management of user conflict was discussed and the Committee, on recommendation of IMBA representatives, officially adopted the position to use IMBA's recent publication, Managing Mountain Biking as a guide to solving conflict issues on trails.

IMBA California Goes to Washington DC
IMBA California Policy Advisor Tom Ward, Government Affairs Director Jenn Dice and DC lobbyist Kirk Bailey recently met with California lawmakers in Washington DC on newly proposed Wilderness legislation. Productive discussions were held on avoiding the potential impacts of proposed legislation on mountain biking opportunities in the state. IMBA California is fully engaged with key stakeholders in negotiations over Wilderness proposals.

Funding Sought for Epic Trail System in King Range
IMBA is working to secure congressional funding for the Paradise Ridge Trail Project in Northern California's spectacular King Range. IMBA California and the California Wilderness Coalition jointly submitted funding support letters to congressional committees responsible for appropriations. With the projected funding, Paradise Ridge will soon become a destination, epic trail system.

Common Ground Committee Meeting in Southern California
IMBA California representatives will meet next month in Southern California with the Committee on Finding Common Ground. The committee will be working on ways to reduce trail conflict and improve the trail experience for all trail users in the state. The committee evolved from an initiative by IMBA California representatives to bring trail users together to find ways to work together on common problems. Hikers, runners and equestrians are also represented in the group. For more information contact tom@imba.com
