mountain bikerMountain bike advocates in New York are seeking better access for mountain bikers in Adirondack State Park.

Recently, the New York Bicycling Coalition teamed up with the International Mountain Bike Association and six local trail organizations to submit comments on proposed amendments to the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan.

Advocates said that while they support amendments that would allow the use of all-terrain bicycles in sections of the Essex Chain Lakes Primitive Area, they would like to see expanded access in other areas of the park.
