Respect for the Wild - A Call to Action

Date Oct 18, 2017

British Columbia, Canada is known for its abundance of wilderness areas. We are fortunate to have public access to many of these wild places, however these environments are fragile. Please respect the natural eco-systems and ride responsibly so that others can enjoy these beautiful places in future.

That's a beautiful edit. I can't help but think it's a bit strange however to omit a discussion of flying dozens of bikers a day who are freshly keen to "shred" these trails. Seems that preservation of this vast network of trails would, to some extent, be self regulating in regards to their distance from metropolitan centers and difficulty to access. 

Or maybe I missed it. Hard to hear over the sound of a radial engine belching into the valley.

Jan, the sound of your self-righteousness is deafening.  What allows you to assume all (or any of) the bikers he ferries up there are "freshly keen to shred these trails"?! And what makes that a bad thing?

Fresh into the personal attacks, nice one. 

Sorry, I thought this video was about sustainable trails. No? Just offering a critical opinion after recounting first hand (in the Chilcotins) how some folks, let's call them 'backcountry adverse', maybe don't exactly have the respect for wilderness they should. I think calling out aircraft shuttles in a Provincial park is a valid point to raise (prove me wrong?). 

Nevermind. I'll just shut up and wonder how all these beer cans ended up on Lorna Pass.

a welcome and overdue take, especially involving Tyax folks.  absofuckinglutely, many of the endurobros and gals shuttled by plane into the 'remote and hard to access backcountry' are on 3 day blaster trips, rip up from the city to fly in and race out as fast as possible. enduro comes to the backcountry- if strava was accessible in the area, it would be a perpetual race with the associated bragging rights. to assume that the multiple daily flights in the region are necessarily good or fine, or ok, is every bit as pigheaded as assuming they are necessarily bad.
