SITUATION
The STC is a non-profit working to reverse the ban on bicycles in Wilderness areas. The Wilderness Act of 1964 didn’t ban bikes, the ban was the product of lobbyists 20 years later. Awareness and understanding of the issue was near zero.

SOLUTION
Human powered recreationists are the precise group the Wilderness Act of 1964 originally celebrated. The “Human Power” campaign tackles the misperceptions, while serving as a foundation for education and action.

IMPACT
The Human-Powered Travel in Wilderness Areas Act (S.1695) is currently in committee before the United States Senate. Awareness, support, and action by the mountain biking community has exceeded all goals.
