Maybe road biking is being promoted, but mountain bike trails are being closed just as fast as dirt bike trails. That's thanks to the (elitist) Sierra Club + hikers + equestrians that have convinced the gov't to ban all mechanized travel from so many trails. Even trails that were created/improved by mountain bikers. It's very very sad.
