Hi all, The thinkMTB club has had a 2 bike rack for a few years, waiting for the right recipient.This rack was generously donated to our club by Evan at HollywoodRacks ( https://hollywoodracks.com ) to use as we saw fit.
Just the other day it came to our attention that Jim Landrigan, whose son James races in NICA could put the rack to good use. It would allow him to haul more NICA riders (and their bikes) to events (once they start back up after the pandemic).
So, we gave Jim the rack. He is ecstatic and really appreciates it. No problem Jim, we are so glad it went to a good home, and will help future MTB riders get enjoyment from exercising on their mountain bikes
Thanks go out to Hollywood Racks again, as we appreciate their kindness of the donation.

(the following came from IMBA's "local update" email dated 4/8/2020) On April 2nd, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) released its long awaited proposed e-bike rule . Our Government Affairs department has provided an initial brief here (and also on your Dashboard under Resources ) on the rule and is preparing for the 60-day public comment period which will be scheduled soon. Overall, IMBA is encouraged by the BLM's decision to recognize class 1, class 2 and class 3 e-bikes separately. We are pleased to see e-bike use decisions will be made during planning processes, which will allow land managers and stakeholders to collaborate locally. IMBA is concerned by the potential allowance of class 2 and class 3 eMTBs on non-motorized trails, versus limiting eMTB use to class 1 only. BLM Rule Brief
