We have bicycled in the Sespe area for the last 10 years, so we particularly enjoyed Bob Sipchen's article in your June 2 Traveling in Style magazine.
If the article inspires people to take their mountain bikes into the Sespe, they'd better go soon. A bill introduced in the House of Representatives would designate large portions of the Sespe, including the area mentioned in Sipchen's article, as National Wilderness. By definition, that excludes bicycles.
Surely there's a way to preserve the area without locking out a significant, long-term user group. Interested bicyclists owe it to themselves to get the details.
