Councilman Appelbaum pretty much summed it up:
Councilman Matt Appelbaum went a step further and said he doesn’t want any human access to the property.
“It’s not that mountain bikes are the problem,” he said. “It’s anything that’s the problem.”
I do not even know where to begin calling out the hypocrisy in Mr. Appelbaum’s statements, but I’m almost too angry about the whole process to write coherently, so I’ll say this: vote for the BMA/BOA endorsements for City Council.
I expect that a lot of people will throw up their hands at this point and just start poaching trails. I cannot say I blame them, though I don’t condone it. CC has made an enemy out of every reasonable mountain biker in Boulder.
