  • This year's national fireworks show has sparked controversy: President Donald Trump siphoned $2.5 million out of National Park fees to cover the cost of the event. Outdoorists are speaking up. Context: An $11 billion national parks backlog still exists.
  • The number of National Park law enforcement rangers has drastically declined, which means there are less to patrol the backcountry and keep animals and people safe. Analysis conducted by USA TODAY found that the number has dropped by more than 20 percent since 2005. 
  • SRAM has recalled two suspension forks—RockShox Lyrik and RockShox Yari—after they were found to have a break hazard, which could cause riders injury.
