  1. Appeasing the Mountain Bikers
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    Just because someone is able to purchase a machine that lets them ride off-road, that is no reason that the public should be required to provide them a place to use it.
  2. The Canadian Environmental Education Catalogue
    A Guide to Selected Resources

    Resource Type: Article
  3. The Earthscan Action Handbook
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1990
    A compendium of the world's major ills with suggestions for remedial action.
  4. Equal Access to Our Parks for Bulldozer Racing
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1999
    Tthere have been some problems, such as some people riding recklessly, going off the designated trails, and even secretly constructing illegal trails. But those are a small minority of bulldozer riders. You shouldn't allow a small minority to give the majority of us bulldozer racers, who ride responsibly, a bad name. Why should we be punished, just because of them, and be forced to walk, just like everybody else?
  5. The Impacts of Mountain Biking on Wildlife and People
    A Review of the Literature

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2004
    It is clear that mountain biking is harmful to some wildlife and people. No one, even mountain bikers, tries to deny that. Bikes create V-shaped ruts in trails, throw dirt to the outside on turns, crush small plants and animals on and under the trail, facilitate increased levels of human access into wildlife habitat, and drive other trail users (many of whom are seeking the tranquility and primitiveness of natural surroundings) out of the parks.
  6. Mountain Biking: Frequently Asked Questions
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    Why do people mountain bike, and what harms does it do?
  7. Only protect: A photographic celebration of our endangered earth
    New Internationalist May 2005 - #378

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    First Published: 2005
    A visual look at the world's Ecosystems and a discussion of the scale and urgency of the environmental crisis.
  8. Places in Need - Mountain Bike Damage
    Resource Type: Article
    Trails are easily and seriously degraded by mountain bike use - especially when those bikes are ridden on wet or muddy trail.
  9. The Psychology of Mountain Biking
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2000
    The first thing one notices about mountain bikers is that they lie continually.
  10. Trail Damage Caused by Irresponsible Mountain Bikers
    Resource Type: Article
    The damage caused by each mountain biker is much greater than that caused by a hiker, firstly because of the extra weight of the bike, and secondly because the soil is impacted continuously along the trail, while a hiker's feet hit the soil only at intervals.
  11. Why Off-Road Bicycling Should be Prohibited
    The Effects of Mountain Biking on Wildlife and People

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1997
    To most environmentalists, bicycles have always been the epitome of good. We are so used to comparing bikes to cars, that it never occurred to us that the bicycle would be ever used for anything bad. Indeed, replacing motor vehicles with bicycles deserves our adoration. But anything can be used for good or evil, and using bikes to expand human domination of wildlife habitat is clearly harmful.
  12. Wildlife Need Habitat Off-Limits To Humans!
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2009
    Environmentalism can most simply be defined as the extension of the Golden Rule to include other species. Wildlife must be given top priority, because they can't protect themselves from us.
