Bottom line: it will be a tedious and acrimonious evening. You will wish you were anywhere else. But if enough mountain bikers show up and politely ask for what we want, we stand a good chance of gaining a lifetime of access to great new trails. You decide if it’s worth it.
As an aside, I was chatting with one of the SOS Boulder ladies (ostensibly the enemy, I am not the type to get mad at people for their opinions about bike trails) and she revealed that her secret for the meetings (holding up a Nalgene bottle) was gin & tonic! A hilarious (and smart!) woman.
