Leaves changing colour, crisp air, the harvest moon; these are signs that autumn has arrived. This time of year is an ideal time to go enjoy the great outdoors and hit the trails on your mountain bike that collected dust during the smokey summer. Go outside and play, however be sure you are not bringing any unwanted invasive species with you that could be hitching a ride on your bike backpack, clothing, vehicle or pet. Need Proof? Look no further then this article in the summer edition of Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine that explains how scientists have proved that mountain bikers can act as a vector of spread for invasive seeds. Do your part to protect our trails and clean your bike in between rides!
