Thank you for printing the guest editorial on allowing bikes in wilderness areas ("Keep mountain bikes out of wilderness areas," Jan. 5).

One of the saddest moments in our trip to Canada was a visit to Whistler Mountain in the summer. They allowed mountain bikes to use the ski lifts, resulting in so much traffic on the trails and deep ruts on the mountain. It felt like the mountains was desecrated and weeping.
