How much thinking does everyone put into their mtb vacation plans/riding vs the environment? I'm thinking things like choosing climbing over shuttles or say heli drops? What about flying overseas vs doing more of a local trip? Has anyone ever run the math on the difference on say flying to Europe for a trip vs say driving to the Kootenays?
I do....not the amount I would like to but I try and have a minimal impact.
I use chairlifts though and if I travel alone in my car in the Alps, I try to climb on my own power as much as I can. All-day alpine mountainbiking. But with my kiddo....well.....chairlifts and bikeparks.
I do think that such decision might minimize individual impact but what is needed is political decisions and laws.
So far, I have significantly reduced my online orders and using my car for getting to places.
But....BC in 2021 would be awesome. As would be in 2022.
