The Judge ruled the only thing the Forest Service did wrong was not have a long enough comment period. The Forest Service could come out with the exact same ruling.

I think the Montana Wilderness Study Area Act of 1977 is clear:

Mr Stroll has never been correct on this issue. He has totally lied about the phrase "no other form of mechanical transport." It totally bans mountain bikes in Wilderness Areas from the beginning. And having local land managers make the decision is a total cluster. Now, all of …
