Sometimes people wonder why we need a mountain bike club. Working with the Forest Service and other agencies can be frustrating and move slower than we like, but an organization can facilitate things. I'm always amazed there is no organized group in Missoula. The Independent just had an article about free riders building illegal trails around Missoula. Maybe if they had been better organized and persistent things might have turned out better. I can guarantee you that the people opposed to more mountain biking are organized.
