Now, that's odd given that hiker, mountain bikers, and
cross-country skiers all cherish trail use in roadless
areas.  And plenty of hunters enjoy hunting in our wilderness
areas.  And snowmobilers aren't restricted to roads.

So ... mountain bikers and snowmobilers are restricted
from designated Wilderness, but these roadless areas aren't
so protected nor will they be under Clinton's plan, if he
carries it through.

I'd love to see Larry Craig on cross-country skiis.  I wonder
if he knows they go on your feet? :)
