House panel expected to approve bill to allow mountain biking in all federal wilderness areas

WASHINGTON — A House committee is expected to approve controversial legislation Wednesday that would open all federal wilderness, including almost 15 million acres in California, to mountain bikes.

The bill by Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Elk Grove (Sacramento County) would amend the 1964 Wilderness Act, which specifically bans “mechanical transport,” to allow bicycles on 109 million acres of designated wilderness that constitute some of the most remote and undisturbed areas of the country.
